Editors struggle to come up with a new angle at the holidays. Why not talk to a few people who are facing the season with confusion this year because some event has changed their holidays forever. The loss of a loved one might leave a large hole in the family portrait, or the loss of a home might remove the setting that gave the whole family such security. Or perhaps, like Dr. O'Reilly, they have recently gone through a divorce.
Resources are available to help people get through a changed holiday season at womenspeak.com.
A single devastating event can change every holiday, birthday, vacation and special event for the rest of a person's life. It has certainly changed Dr. O'Reilly's. Through her own choice she now lives in a different house, has different pets and a lot of new friends; She has intentionally added a lot of new things to her life. She knows that no matter how hard they try, people will not be able to re-create the holidays they enjoyed before devastating change overtook their lives.
