While reading a history of caroling in Greece, this jumped out…

…These carolers have far more consideration for the feelings of their fellow – creatures than English carolers… the candle lighter is always sent on ahead to inquire of the household that they propose to visit if there is mourning in the house…

Here is a culture that acted like mourning people mattered!

Here is a hint about a culture that bent low to care for those in grief.

Grief makes everything burn more intensely, things sound harsher, our senses are raw and easily jangled. It might seem like you lost a layer of epidermis.

If you need to have your feelings taken into consideration over the hype of the holidays, recall that there was a time in human history when the feelings of mourners were taken into greater consideration. Rest in that knowledge.
