Chyrsanthemums-Commemorating the Dead

On these days, Roman Catholics and Anglo-Catholic churches, all Western Christians, commemorate the faithful departed, The Day of Dead.

The traditions and activities that take place in celebration of the Day of the Dead are not universal. Different Christian traditions define, remember and respond to the the celebration of this day in very different ways.
In most countries, cemeteries are inundated with people who visit the graves of their loved ones with flowers, light candles and pray for the departed souls.
