Tutti santi

Today is Halloween mostly celebrated in the USA and Canada. Despite its spooky and scary get up, it is the eve of "All Hallows' Day"which is now also known as All Saints' Day that falls on November 1. In Italy, it is a day for remembering those in the family who have pased away. Flowers and prayers are offered at their graves. A solemn and honourable custom.
