Christmas Comes to the Graveyard. . . just like Christmas used to come to the Cook farm in rural Frederick County, Maryland. In the farmhouse (see it?), a wreath of presents would encircle the base of the Christmas tree. Among them, always, would be some Old Spice. Today, in the post-departum world, the tradition continues, now under the watchful eye of a guardian snowman. Mount Olivet Cemetery.
