The annual celebration of Children’s Day throughout the world is December 6. It’s also the day chosen for the annual Candlelight Vigil held at Christmas Box Angels throughout the world. The gathering is to remember and celebrate the lives of children who are deceased. It is an opportunity to meet together, offer support, love and reassurance to those who share in this– one of life’s greatest tragedies. The tradition of the Christmas Box Angel came about because of the book The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans.
WHEN: December 6, 6:00– 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Fielding Memorial Cemetery on South Yellowstone Blvd. in Idaho Falls
WHO: All are welcome to attend this uplifting vigil. Participants are encouraged to bring a flower to be placed at the base of the statue in remembrance of their loved one. Music will be provided by the Idaho Falls Sounds Choir.
