Oak Brook, IL (PRWEB) November 25, 2008 -- When a child has died, the holidays are an extremely difficult time for the family. While others are enjoying celebrations and holiday good cheer, bereaved families find themselves simply trying to figure out how they can survive what used to be, for many, such a special time of the year.

Bereaved families now have one special day when they can join together to remember all children around the world who have died, regardless of age or cause of death. The second Sunday in December is The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting. More than 500 formal services planned for December 14 are expected to be listed on The Compassionate Friends national website with hundreds more planned for that day. Dozens of countries will be hosting services around the globe.

The Worldwide Candle Lighting is sponsored by The Compassionate Friends, the world's largest self-help bereavement organization. The event is officially held the second Sunday in December at 7 p.m. local time for one hour creating a 24-hour wave of light around the earth,
