On All Saints' Day all friends and relatives are remembered who have passed away. The most important tradition of this day is going to the cemetery with bouquets of flowers (in order) to visit loved ones and in this way keep their memory alive. In addition, in all the churches in the country special masses are held and many flowers are sold in the street. In some cities in the north of Spain, it is a popular tradition to eat roasted chestnuts in the street in the company of family and friends.
