Hospice of North Idaho presents: The 40th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony @ Hospice of North Idaho - Community Building
Dec 10 @ 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The holidays can feel overwhelming for those of us who are experiencing deep grief over the death of a loved one. Our grief casts a shadow over all the tinsel and tradition, causing the holiday to shine just a little less brightly than we remember. The magic of the season feels as though it has been taken along with our loved ones.

As our hearts feel heavy during this holiday season, it is important to mourn our loss, but it is equally important to celebrate the love for those lost that persists even after death. That deep love brought to light and happiness into our world. And although death took that person away, the love that was shared can never be taken.

The Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony provides a comforting space to reflect on the love we shared through comforting words, calming music, and a meaningful luminary walk around the Hospice of North Idaho Community Campus.

Each family in attendance will receive a meaningful keepsake ornament to take home in honor of their loved one.

In an effort to ensure the ability to socially distance, we are offering two ceremony times. Please reserve the time slot you intend to attend through the ticketing feature. Space is limited to 100 guests at each interval.

This is an indoor/outdoor event. We recommend bringing warm clothes for the Luminary Walk.
