my husband’s uncle passed away yesterday evening. His family is making funeral arrangements. They will let us know as soon as they hear anything. I was assuming there would not be a funeral Jan1 due to it being a feast day, but I also saw they are not held on Christmas eve or the day before January 1 (that was the wording rather than dec. 31).
Is anyone familiar with why that is? Christmas eve I can understand. I also knew that Christmas day and New Year’s day due to feast of st. Mary were not options. I wasn’t familiar with the new year’s eve rule however. At any rate we are waiting on specifics from my husband’s family. I really doubt the funeral will be tomorrow.
