The poles do not celebrate Halloween. I asked a Pole if she was going to a Halloween party and she said that she had to stay home and cry. She said her mother would be horrified if she went to a party. On the other hand, All Saints Day seems to be a time to be happy and go remember your loved ones. Interestingly, there were lots of candles concentrated around the graves of famous people. I am not sure about the meaning of this, if the people really genuinely mourn for these heroes or if they do it as sort of a fan club type of thing.
In any case, it was a very interesting time to be in Warsaw!
