(Nederlands) Kerstavond op Canadian War Cemetery 24 December 2016

Sorry, this entry is only available in Dutch.

Xmas eve 2012 at the Canadian War Cemetery Holten

Like all previous years, a small delegation of ours was invited to play at the “placing of the candles” at the Canadian War Cemetery in Holten.

The children were “piped in” from the entrance to the Cross of Remembrance.

This year, also Canadian children accompanied the Dutch children at placing the candles at each headstone.

This year’s weather was certainly not “Xmas like”, but resultated in a huge attendance and made playing the pipes a bit more pleasant.

Xmas 2010 Remembrance at the Holten Canadian War Cemetery

This year’s Xmas eve celebration at the Holten Canadian war cemetery had all aspects of a “White Christmas”, but that implied it was really cold.

The bitter cold even attempted to freeze the bagpipes

But this low temperature did not hinder the school children to place the candles at all the graves
