OOPS - I missed a post somewhere! - Christmas and Deceased Relatives
I can honestly say that I don't think we visited the cemetery at Christmas until I started genealogical research. Now, I usually visit cemeteries on my Christmas break. Why? Because the snakes are hibernating! It's the best time to visit them.
I don't think we had a special way of honoring family members although it was always sad on the first Christmas without someone we were used to have being around.
