All Saints’ Day

All Saints Day (Nov. 1) varies from country to country. Here businesses close and everyone goes to the cemetery and spends much of the day visiting graves, tidying the grave, and placing flowers and candles for the departed.  All the Catholic cemeteries, which are much much bigger, are a bus ride away, so I found a smaller, “Evangelical” (historically Lutheran) one only a few walking minutes from our home, and made my flatmates take me there on their way to a bar that night. At first we couldn’t figure out where the entrance was, then we finally got inside and walked around a bit. All of the graves were lite, except the very old historical section. It was very lovely and of course a bit creepy. 🙂

Recent graves are most abundantly decorated.

These are large figures perched on the top of a door frame of a very unusual, but very cool building tucked away in Bielsko. I’m not sure whats in the building, other than the Chinese restaurant on the first floor (ground floor for all you Europeans).
