Christmas too painful to bear?
Sometimes life events, which should be joyful and full of love an happiness can be the most painful and lonely times of the year. Awful, heart-wrenching life changing circumstances sometimes mean we just need to get away from Christmas.
This is something many of our guests have merited the Parliament House Hotel upon. We deliver our guests a very low key Christmas, with just a tree in the lounge. No Christmas music, no overwhelming decorations, no Christmas day restaurant opening, just quiet, peaceful, homely and relaxed. We can help you organise your dining needs for the day, or room service and some movies should you want to simply snuggle up for a duvet day. Let us know your ideal getaway from Christmas and we will get it sorted – all of it, just for you!
Coping with festive holidays after a divorce or separation
Seasonal and festive holidays like Christmas can be really hard for newly singles and / or parents not living with their children. We have been through this ourselves here at The Parliament House Hotel and we know all to well how distressing and tense this situation can be. We also know just how to help you get away from it – sometimes a change in scenery and a bit of down time alone can really help. Get in touch and tell us your situation and just maybe we can help make your Christmas a little less painful and a little more self supportive.
Over Christmas, the lonely days become very difficult for those who have lost loved ones. It is harder still when your loved one has died close to the festive holidays as it is when it’s your first Christmas without a loved one. Christmas, sadly, can become a dreaded time and is sometimes unbearable with emotions are becoming most tender.
In just a moment’s time, memories of past holidays can come flooding into the mind. Just hearing a Christmas carol in the shops or putting special decorations on the tree can bring floods of tears. Let us help… From the perspective of a survivor, Friends and sometimes family cannot understand what the you feel or what you really need. Sometimes it’s good to change your routine, go somewhere different and do things to set new memories rather than trigger old ones.
It’s healthy for families to talk about what they want to do with their holidays. If there are small children, usually some attempt to put up a tree and decorations are important. But if the you don’t not want to do this, why not let us put up the tree and make some plans for you that don’t include Christmas celebrations. Tell us how you would like to spend your holidays and we will organise this for you in a safe and relaxing environment.
