Wszystkich Świętych Polska

All Saints’ Day

It is a religious feast celebrated on 1st November in the honour of all Saints.
2nd November is an All Souls’ Day also known as “The Day of the Dead”. It’s the day of prayers for people who passed away (relatives, acquaintances, unknown people buried in cemeteries). On this day religious people visit cemeteries in order to pray, they put gravelights and flowers on graves.
In Poland, due to the fact that only the 1st of November is a Bank Holiday, it is this day Polish people visit the graves of their relatives.
