Theme: Halloween, All Saints’ Day and all

The last two weeks or so, we have been travelling around southeast of England, France and a bit of Italy and along the way I was able to accumulate photos relating to Halloween and All Saints’ Day and I thought it would be a very timely subject for this week’s theme. 

Halloween observance in Europe is not as lavish as they do in America but it’s kind of cute looking at shops’ fancy displays and board notices. 

It’s also fascinating how the French and most particularly the Italians honor their dead, just go to any cemetery in both countries and you will notice flowers – fresh alright – adorning the tombs almost all year round!
