Today I was thinking that of all of the holidays, Thanksgiving especially would be depressing, with my dad gone (he died earlier this year). In earlier years when their deaths were more recent I thought about my mom and my sister especially on Thanksgiving. For years it was my dad and two sisters, that was my family, and we would have dinner at me and Dad's house. And now I lost my dad. I would miss these people all the time but Thanksgiving probably would be the hardest day.

Because to me Thanksgiving is very serious in mood for a holiday and greatly involves the family, and maybe something about it being in the fall when it's starting to be cold.

Actually my mom died around Thanksgiving and then my sister died around Christmas a year later. It seemed like it was to ruin my family's biggest holidays. But we were not defeated by that fact. We still enjoyed those holidays, for the most part, and I was not thinking of my mom's death occurring around Thanksgiving when I was sad on that day.

MDenise, Holidays are some of the worst time for those of us left behind. One suggestion made to those who have lost several family members during holidays is to start new traditions, like volunteering or traveling to somewhere exotic and exciting. I know adventures can't replace loved ones, but it can create new and happy memories. We will be with you for all of your holidays. ModKonnie
