Remembering our loved ones: All Saints in Slovakia

leave a comment »

Irritated again by Halloween (a nearby house had a plastic skeleton hanging outside, and they were drinking wine by a lit brazier in the front garden at 5 o’clock in the afternoon). I was reminded of being in Slovakia last year on All Saints day (the day after Halloween) and huge crowds visiting the graves of their family members to picnic, lay flowers and lights at the cemetery. A much better ceremony for remembering and thinking about our loved ones. Why don’t we do this in Britain?
