Today is La Toussant in France

La Toussaint is what they call All Saints Day in France. It is celebrated on November 1. All Saints Day is a Catholic holiday that celebrates the dead and all the saints in heaven. The French celebrate by visiting cemeteries to see the graves of their deceased loved ones.

One tradition they have is placing chrysanthemum flowers on the graves every La Toussaint.

This day is designated as a time to be with family and other loved ones as you remember your deceased loved ones. It is a day for prayer and silent remembering.
