This Finnish tradition of remembering loved ones during the holiday season has once again become a priority in our community. Ice candles are placed at the Embarrass Cemetery on grave sites and along the driveway for a magical display of light, warmth, and beauty on a cold winter night. The magical display of light is made possible by volunteers placing and lighting 400+ ice candles at the cemetery. A holiday gathering with food, kid's crafts and fellowship takes place at the Embarrass Town Hall following the lighting. May even be a surprise guest or two! This event is scheduled for Saturday, December 21, 2013 from 4:00-6:00 at the Embarrass Town Hall and Cemetery. For more information: please call 218-984-2084.
