This week’s photo is a throwback from 2019. The image is courtesy of battlefield tours.ca and features the annual Holten Canadian War Cemetery Christmas Eve Ceremony.

For the last 28 years, on Christmas Eve, hundreds of children in the Netherlands have gathered at war cemeteries placing candles at the graves of more than 2,000 Canadian soldiers.

Ceremonies are held across Europe and England to remember those who gave their all. We will remember.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Canadian Military Family Magazine team.

Cyndi Mills - Owner | Publisher CMF Magazine

Admittedly the Queen of Typos, Cyndi Mills strives for none, but one or two always seems to slip in. She apologizes! Over the last 29 years Cyndi has had the opportunity to move around the country with her husband, Scott and their four children. Having lived in Chilliwack, Edmonton, London, and Petawawa. She stumbled into the world of journalism by accident – looking for a career that could give her the flexibility to work from home to be with her children and support her husband's military career. Cyndi is also a military parent as her two oldest children are in the military. Raising her third and fourth teenagers, she tries to keep sane by walking, gardening, writing, and spending time with her family while running Canadian Military Family Magazine.
