Going into Christmas was a bit rough for me. It's the first year that Dad didn't call me on Christmas. I got very upset and emotional about 2 days ahead of time. I was okay on the day itself though. Very hard to think about.

Do you do anything special to remember your parent at Christmas?

I gave my mum a heart locket for Christmas and printed and cut into a heart shape a tiny picture of my dad with Daniel when he was a baby. Other than that we didn't do anything specific although candles were lit on Yule (I'm Pagan). However we very much felt Dad with us and thought of him the whole time. There were some rough moments. I thought it would be harder on my mum being the first Christmas since his passing, she coped extremely well.

this was my 4th Christmas without my mom, it was the easiest, but still hard, if that makes any sense. She always had huge turkey dinners, this year no one from either of our families joined us, which was the hardest thing ever. It just feels like nobody is here for us

I miss my mom most over Christmas, December is usually tough, this year was a bit easier, though.

This was my 3rd Christmas without my mom, and it was by-far the hardest. It was the first year we went to my dad's house (for Christmas) with his girlfriend and he daughter being there. It was weird.
