Living in Spain and bringing up a Spanglish family during the current 'crisis' and trying various ways to make some 'dinero'. Enjoying life in the sun, crafting and blogging as much as possible.

All Saints Day and All Souls Day

The end of October brings All Saint's Day and All Soul's Day in Spain, another Bank Holiday weekend and an important family occasion for Spanish families. Work is underway to clean cemeteries, repainting and replanting ready for the visits of family and friends, the bakeries filled with "saint's bones" and sticky arrope, candles, flowers and sweet pink potatoes on sale in village stores across the region ready for the events of the next few days.

Don't forget, the 1st November is a National Holiday.
