Xmas eve 2011 at Holten Canadian War Cemetary

Like in previous years a delegation of our Pipe Band was present at the Holten Canadian war  cemetery to support the placing of the candles.

It’s a pleasant thought that this ceremony is being attended by so many children, and thereby passing on the memory of freedom and its sacrifices.

This year, no snow, mild temperature and an unclouded sky saving the daylight a bit longer.

Like always, the combination of  children placing the candles at every grave and the sound of “Midwinterhoorn” and Bagpipes made it a true beginning of Christmas

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
