honor deceased family members at Christmas?
I do not remember visiting the cemetery at Christmas. We would honor their memories by continuing traditions and remembering them that way.
My mom and dad shared a bit that I didn't know:
Grandma Ruth LeMaster always visited the cemetery and placed wreaths or grave blankets on the deceased. I don't visit the cemetary at Christmas. Since my parents are buried next to the highway, I always look over at the tombstone and think of them. One way I probably honor my parents is to talk about them to my grandchildren. I also bake their favorite cookies. I decorate the house with many of my parent's decorations.
