3. Light a memorial candle
Candles are often used as symbols of hope, light, and warmth, and can be a comforting presence during times of loss or sadness. At Christmas, lighting a special memorial candle is a way to honour and remember loved ones, and to keep their memory alive during the holiday season. Lighting a candle in memory of a loved one at Christmas can provide a sense of solace and comfort and can be a way to express love and appreciation for the person, even though they are no longer physically present.
4. Organise a memory walk with friends and family
For a lot of families, Christmas walks are a tradition. Whether it be on Christmas day after a roast, or boxing day morning, it is always a great way to walk off the festive food and drink and enjoy nature with loved ones. Taking a memory walk in honour of a deceased loved one at Christmas is a great way to honour them and keep their memory alive.
A memory walk could be to their favourite place to go when they were alive, or even to the site of their ashes. Going on a memory walk with family and friends is a great way to reconnect with your loved one, talk about memories you have of them, and improve mental well-being.
