This year let's change. Why don't you get in touch and we can work things out together.
For some people this time of year can highlight how alone they are or how far away family may be. If you can, spare some time and some festive kindness for anyone who finds Christmas hard.
It costs nothing and can really change a situation/feeling and consequence....
Be brave mention them sometimes it can lovely to chat about a lost one even if it is painful too.
