All Saints and Martyrs Day

Today, the cemeteries of France are full of colour, life and love. November 1st. is ‘All Saints and Martyrs Day’ in Catholic faith. Families visit their deceased loved ones, tidy their graves, and offer beautiful bouquets of Chrysanthemums.

  1. Dear V, my Mom turned 87 today and all my life she would joke about respecting her since she is a “saint!” 🙂 I showed her your lovely message and post today. She is glad people still celebrate All Saints Day. Hope this finds you well and having a sunny day. ♡ Smiles, Robin
