  1. I think this is an excellent topic for discussion. It may be the season to be jolly, but what if you're not jolly? When my mother died, I went through Christmas in a fog of grief. To this day I can't remember the details, not where we had dinner, who came from out of town, what we did about gifts. That part of it was so unimportant compared to the fierce pain of my loss. I'm glad I had understanding friends.
