This morning, at the market in my street,
there were big pots of flowers called « Chrysanthèmes ».
It reminded me of all the people we loved that won’t be here for Christmas, this year.
And about the luck we have to still be surrounded by so many loved ones.
Because in France, this Saturday, we celebrate la Toussaint. It’s the time to remember the deads.
And also as I’m half Mexican, this is a very special day (el Día de Muertos) in my family.
It’s a bank holiday as well and as in your country probably, the cemeteries will be full of flowers.
La Toussaint in France: this is what we’ll see on today’s episode of Comme une Française TV!
Have you spent a “La Toussaint” in France?
What did you see around November 1st?
Share your story (in French if you can) about La Toussaint in the comments below. I look forward to reading your anecdotes!
A bientôt !
