When you're a young widow holidays become a day to through not celebrate...

You are so right Winnie.  We get through them one day at a time.  I still don't like holidays anymore.
Hugs to you.

This year we just really avoided doing anything for Father's Day because it was too hard.

Holidays, especially in the beginning, are so so hard. Over time, I have tried to change what I do on holidays (for example, I volunteer and deliver meals on Thanksgiving, my son and I go away somewhere fun for the 4th of July) and that has helped. I try and see my family (and his) on and around Xmas with my son so we aren't alone at home.
