Toussaint

Halloween is called Toussaint here in France which is All Saints Day. It is a custom to go to the cemetery where loved ones lie and place flowers and clean up the tomb a bit. I went into Perl Lachaise on November first, a beautiful day, as there are always flowers everywhere, usually mums. Lots of autumn leaves too.
