hello, we went to the cemetery today, to visit our beloved dead we always did it on November 2 though, All Soul's Day but tomorrow wasn't declared a holiday anyway, we went and saw a lot of people there too, putting up tents and setting up food what touched me was when i saw this father and his kids decorating the grave of (i think their mom), the little kids were putting small flowers all around and i thought it was really nice and quite sad back to me, we went there are saw some of our relatives and prayed and prayed what did you do today?

In my country we celebrate All Saint´s day in the first day of November. No reason to have a holiday on Monday just because the date was in a Sunday.

I did not know this was even a holiday. I should visit my grandmas grave as I haven't in years but not even sure where she is located anymore. I will have to find out.

I did not know this was a holiday there for you lady. Our day for going to the cemetary is usually Veterans Day. However, have a nice day.
