All Saints

Omnia_Sanctorum

Most Mallorcans were busy yesterday and, indeed, for all of last week with the preparations for today’s Tots Sants celebrations.

Tots Sants (Todos los Santos, All Saints) is an annual event celebrated throughout the Catholic world honouring deceased family members and remembering the dead. The affair is taken rather seriously with graves and tombs being cleaned thoroughly, to be decorated with lavish adornments of ample flower bouquets.

As this year the fiesta falls on a Sunday, some Mallorcan municipalities have decided to declare tomorrow, Monday, a day off, such as Palma.
