A time to re­mem­ber

Living France - - What's New -

All Saints’ Day on 1 Novem­ber is known as La Tous­saint in France and is a Catholic tra­di­tion of hon­our­ing the dead. On this day, fam­i­lies visit the ceme­tery to­gether where they put chrysan­the­mum flow­ers on the grave and light can­dles. It is a pub­lic hol­i­day in France so many fam­i­lies like to take time to spend the day to­gether, re­mem­ber­ing loved ones who are no longer with them and en­joy­ing some qual­ity time with those fam­ily mem­bers who still are.
