Advent Calendar 2010: December 22 – Christmas and Deceased Relatives

December 22 – Christmas and Deceased Relatives

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

[Note: This post originally ran during the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories in December 2009]

Yes, we would visit the cemetery on Christmas Day. We had to go to two different cemeteries because my mother's parents were buried in a different cemetery than my father's parents. We would always put a wreath on the grave of a deceased ancestor. Also, we would contribute for flowers to be put on the altar at church in memory of deceased loved ones.
