In my part of world, we don't celebrate Halloween, there is no trick or treating but getting ready for the "Day of the Dead", a holiday of ancestor appreciation.
Like in most European countries, we celebrate All Saints' Day on November 1st and All Souls' Day on November 2nd.
On the 1st of November most families visit cemeteries to remember deceased loved ones.
We decorate the family grave and relatives' gravestones with flowers and light candles.The Chrysanthemum is the flower of this day. There are fields of Chrysanthemum everywhere on the streets. Traffic is paralyzed but there is no financial crises on this day. It's the biggest day of the year for florists.
The graveyards look wonderful with all those candle lights on.
