All Saints Day

All Saints Day is celebrated across Spain on 1st November, and is a National holiday in the country. The day is celebrated in order to remember the departed friends and relatives, and pay respects to them. People visit the cemeteries and offer flowers, especially chrysanthemums, on the grave of their deceased relatives. Churches hold mass for the occasion. The atmosphere is family friendly and people not only remember the deceased, but also celebrate just being alive
