All Saints Day 2020, 2021 and 2022

In Spain, every 1 November is All Saints Day to remember Christian saints who do not have their own Saint day. However, due to All Souls Day being on the very next day, the meaning of All Saints Day has expanded as a day to remember all those who have departed.

On All Saints Day, millions of devout families turn out to decorate the graves of the deceased. Some even clean up the graves several days in advance to prepare them for the occasion. people all over Spain return from the big cities to their original home towns and villages, causing a good deal of traffic congestion but keeping the memory of now-gone relatives alive.

The ceremonies are very solemn, and masses are held several times in the day at many graveyards. At grave sites, you will see many ornate floral arrangements and an incredible diversity of colours, though chrysanthemums are particularly traditional.

Shops will be well stocked with bouquets in anticipation of the holiday, and streets will be lined with flower vendors. In fact, more flowers are sold in Spain on All Saints Day than on any other day of the year.
