Holidays are often difficult for those dealing with infertility. Passover, which begins on March 25th on Monday evening, can be a tricky holiday for the childless. The holiday's main event - the seder, which involves telling the story of the Exodus - includes many child-centered activities. In fact, one of the primary goals of the ritual is to pass the story onto the next generation.
If you think you can't participate in the Passover holiday because you don't have children of your own, think again. You just may need to think outside of the box. In this article, I'll give you some ideas, plus a story that is sure to inspire.
Easter is also coming up, on March 31st, and while I don't know much about Easter, I know it's a very important holiday, that family gather together for it, and that essentially qualifies it as a difficult time for the fertility challenged. (Sad but true!)
How do you cope during the holidays? What are your struggles? Feel free to leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you!
