Remembering loved ones at Christmas time

I lost my mum in 2014 and this will be our second Christmas without her, last year I thought I'd buy a little something to put on the tree in her memory and so I searched for something I liked and chose a beautiful bauble with a white feather inside with Mum printed on it and the date we lost her, from Feather in a Bauble.


This year I have got a lovely heart with angel wings from Button and Bobbin



There is nothing I can do about mum not being with us anymore and times like birthdays and Christmas are so hard, I suppose this is my way of including mum and remembering her.

Do you do anything to remember your lost loved ones at Christmas time?

  1. A very nice post! We should always carry our loved ones who are not with us any more in our harts.

  2. I'm sorry that your mum isn't around to celebrate with you but I really do think this is such a sweet sentiment! I don't have anything solid but have a lot of memories of people gone at Christmas

  4. My Mum died five years ago on Christmas day, therefore, christmas is a really bittersweet time for me. Every year I go to her grave and leave a christmas wreath that the boys have chosen

  11. This is a beautiful idea. I'm so sorry that you've lost your Mum, Christmas must be a very difficult time for you. My Mum organises a Festival of Light at her local church every year in December - it's a service to help people remember their loved ones who have died, and she says that it really helps people.
