Merry Christmas and Happy Wedding Day!!!

In today’s society a wedding usually doesn’t occur on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, but in older times it was very common.  Since some family members lived rather far apart, getting together for the holidays ensured they would also be at the wedding of loved ones.  I share with you today  a list of Christmas Day marriages.  Have yourself a merry little Christmas!
