For the 25th time ...

Recommended Posts

Dutch school kids remember and pay their respects to the Canadian soldiers that liberated their country...

Now I knew this was happening each and every year 'round Christmas, but just now I learned how this tradition started:  A woman discovered a Finnish name on one of the stones, and she was familiar with a Finnish tradition... so, that's how it started 25 years ago, not just for that one Finnish name, but for all of the others resting there, all 1394 of them...
