Celebrating La Toussaint
November 1st is 'la Toussaint' - (All Saints Days) in France and is a contraction of the phrase ’ Tous les Saints’. It’s the day when people mourn their dead, go to special church services, visit cemeteries and and put fresh flowers on their loved ones' graves. Chrysanthemums are usually chosen and they are everywhere at this time of year. The photo shows the decorations in the main square in Coutances in Normandy.
