November's Activities and Things to Do...

... in the South West of France

South West Story
Good morning, good afternoon, good evening (depending on what side of the globe you are)...
and Happy Halloween and Happy All Saints Day!!!
 
mumsOn the 1st of November, France, like many other countries with strong Catholic traditions, celebrates Toussaint - the Day of All the Saints. It is a holiday instituted by Louis the Pious, King of Franks, as long ago as the year 835 AD. Later, in the 10th century, the Catholic Church added on the 2nd of November the day of the dead: "Défunts".
Today 1st of November is a national holiday, and many people take advantage of the day off to pay their respects to their dead - honored the next day - by visiting the cemeteries and putting on the graves pots of Chrysanthemums (chrysanthemums are considered in France symbolic of death and are used only for funerals or on graves, never to be offered!).
