Ever since we lost my mom last year, our 3 daughters have had a wide range of grief. Mom was the "one" in the family that put Christmas on, so to speak. She was the one with all the traditions and holiday cheer. Last Christmas we were on the road and really didn't have to worry about a tree and all the x-mas jazz. This year, well I am torn. The kids seem to be oblivious to the fact that x-mas is 2 weeks ago and we have no tree. There have been no requests for gifts, and basically no talk of the holiday. I don't have an ounce of x-mas cheer. So do I let the girl's decide what they want? What harm, if any could come out of letting the girl's skip Christmas, if that's what they want?
