All Saints' Day

Saturday 6 November is Alla helgons dag - All Saints’ Day, which is a public holiday in Sweden (not to be confused with allhelgonadagen which is the day after Halloween on 31 October). It is custom to light candles on graves in remembrance of deceased family members and friends. Many churches organise concerts to celebrate All Saints' Day. You can read more here.
The day before All Saints’ Day (tomorrow) is not a public holiday but a lot of the university staff (including me) will be off tomorrow.
