1 November in Poland (2019)

November 1, 2019 by ChrisJamesAuthor

As regular readers of this blog know, All Saints Day is a very special yet sombre day in Poland, a day when Poles flock to their cemeteries to remember the dead.  Every year I am rendered speechless by how beautifully the graves are adorned with flowers and candles, and this year is no exception.  All of the images below were taken this evening at the Remembertow Cemetery in Warsaw.

    Looking at your photos made me realise that this commemoration is not just a gift of flowers and candles. It’s a gift of time. Time to clean the gravesite, arrange the flowers in all their beauty and then light the scene with candles. I wish we had something like this here as well.
