Missed Alla Helgons dag/Allhelgona (All Saints Eve) because of work, but it was fun work! Doctor Who event at the bookshop, and so many people came that there really wasn't room for them, heh. May go to the cemetery tomorrow instead (was too beat today). Enjoyed some pics of the lights (though I suspect they're not from this year) for the moment.



We don't really celebrate Halloween in Sweden, despite commercial powers trying really hard to make it a thing. But even if it's not a big thing for kids, there are lots of "Halloween parties" being held. On All Saints Eve... (Which was November 3rd.) I suspect it will all be merged in some way (even more than it already is) in the future. All Saints Eve isn't exactly an old tradition either, I've heard. We just go a bit crazy with the light worship at this time of year. We don't actually worship any saints (we're not even Christian, most of us), we just latch on to any opportunity to light candles (and drink alcohol, of course).
