Advent Calendar - December 22 - Christmas & Deceased Relatives

Christmas and Deceased Relatives

Did your family visit the cemetery at Christmas? How did your family honor deceased family members at Christmas?

To my knowledge, we have never visited a cemetery at Christmas.  First, we live in the frigid north, and cemeteries are frequently buried in snow by this time of year.  Second, none of our relatives are buried closer than about a four hour drive away.  We focus on the reason for the season, and those relatives who are still with us, that we can share the good times with.
