All Saint’s Day

Cementerio de Torrero

In Spain, each on November 1, families meet to render homage to their deads by visiting the cemetery, adorning their gravestones with flowers.

I remember this day when I was a child. My parents were taking us to the cemetery. I was always wearing some new garment, that was fantastic and to meet the family. It was a tradition.

But nowadays, we try to move us away from the death, so it seems that it does not exist… A great mistake, in my opinion.
