October 31 2009 Polish Culture Newsletter
In the article below I decided to describe one of the most important holidays in Poland, celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November. The two holidays (celebrated almost as one) are the tribute to those who left the life on earth. It is the important period of contemplation and remembrance. It is also the time when Polish cemeteries become embellished with thousands of lights creating unforgettable site.
All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day
During the two days the Poles celebrate bank holiday that gives time and opportunity for contemplation. Especially important, during this time, is remembrance to all those who died. Visitors to cemeteries embellish graves with flowers and candles.
