Did your family go on a yearly camping trip, have a secret handshake, or go out for ice cream every Friday night? Rituals and traditions provide us with a sense of comfort and identity. Bringing back an old tradition can be a natural way to work through any grief or unfinished feelings you may have. It may also be difficult, so be prepared that it may bring up strong emotions. Tread lightly at first, and keep an open mind if a family member or friend declines the invitation.
