Last Christmas (that of 2011) we started a Christmas tradition with my husband's side of the family in memory of his wonderful brother Verd.
This year was just as wonderful...with frigid temps and a full moon (with a "halo" around it!!) we all bundled up and headed out.
The lanterns went right toward that haloed moon...I think I speak for everyone when I say this has become a tradition that we all enjoy so much, a way for us to remember and celebrate Verd.

Merry Christmas, Verd! We miss you!!
