Christmas Carols # 17

Today, December 17th is the birthday of Gunnar's father. He was born exactly 100 years ago.
We have this tradition to meet and put wreaths and lights on family graves today.
Lights are an important part of advent celebration this darkest month of the year.
It's also a great way of connecting with and remembering the ones who are in heaven now.

Christmas songs by the Sami people of the Nordic countries.

Serendipity is at work between us, Elise. Don and I met on December 17th. Nine years after we were first married, we married again (in the Church) on - yes, you guessed it - December 17th. Love and blessings to you in this holy season.

Happy anniversary, Annie.
December 17th certainly is a good day for true love and birthdays.
