Advent Calendar - Christmas and Deceased Relatives

A post for the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories

We don't have any particular traditions for honouring deceased relatives at Christmastime. As we don't have a habit of staying in one place (or even one country) we have no local cemeteries where loved ones are remembered, and we don't set out a place for them at the Christmas table or anything like that. They are in our hearts at Christmas just as they are all year round.

Ruby, one of the "You Go Genealogy Girls", posted about her ancestor tree as part of the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories, and I do like the idea of this. While we don't have extensive photos of generations gone by in our family I think we do have enough to make some ancestor ornaments for next year, and I may just do this.
