  • 1. and
    All Souls' Day
    All Saints' Day
  • 2. All Saints' Day is a Christian feast in honor of all known and unknown saints and martyrs who are in heaven with God. This is the first day of November .DzieńZaduszny, day of prayer for the souls of all dead, is Nov. 2, but because it is not a day off from work, many people just come November 1 to cemeteries to pray and light candles. All Saints' Day is for Catholics primarily on meditation and reflection on death and the meaning of human life.
  • 3. All Souls’ Day.
    On this day, in many countries, people trying to be funnyand often it looks like to the mockery of death.Children dress up in funny clothes and with a plastic pumpkin and go to neighboring houses to ask for a sweets. Sometimes they do it rather aggressively. Adults dancing in pubs. At the cadaverous painted faces drips violet light,in the corners are suspended of artificial cobwebs and of artificial spiders,witches on broomsticks are dancing their ritual dances ...
    And in Poland .... ? If the weather allows it,we participate in Holy Mass celebrated at the cemetery,then visit the graves of our loved ones, we light candles.In the circle of the family and friends we remember those who have departed.Such a moment of reflection allows the distance to earthly things.
    And in the evening cemeteries are changing in a magic world, over each of them rises to glow from thousands of small flames. The mood of this day is unique.

    Na cmentarzu płomyki złote
    i groby w chryzantemach.
    Ludzie przyszli tu z myślą o tych,
    których już nie ma.
    Wspominają drogie imiona,
    zasłaniają lampki przed wiatrem,
    dla tych bliskich wieńce zielone
    i bukiety jesienne pełne kwiatów.
