All Souls’ Day

Each year, at the beginning of November, the Christian Church keeps All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day (1st and 2nd of November) as a particular time in the year when we remember all those who have gone before us.  We share a simple service together, read out the names of everyone people wish to be remembered and light candles for them.  The last couple of years we have also gone outside, following what they do in South America, and lit candles and put them in jam jars and placed them on loved one’s graves in the cemetery.
