1st November 2016
Today is a public holiday so I am at home because we do no visit cementaries. My parents are the first generation who were born in Poland. My relatives are buried are far away in different countries and continents.
Special church services are held to commemorate the saints in various towns and cities in Poland. Many people in Poland lay flowers and candles on the graves of deceased family members and friends in cemeteries. This tradition continues through to All Souls’ Day which is on November 2, but it is not a public holiday.
