Holidays can become hollow through twists of fate.
Thefts of Loss, inevitable and unexpected change these special days on our calendar for some.
While the growing annual marketing madness annoys most people, it is stinging reminders to many of a loss stained day, a holiday that they would rather not endure.
Loneliness gives these once fond days an ache, changing them into days of dread with a hollow feeling.
Perhaps we should all make time on holiday’s to quietly think about those who are hurting.
Eventually most of us will have our own turn.
