November is a month of remembrance. Here in Germany, we have two Sundays donated to those past away. Volkstrauertag (Memorial Day – literally the day of mourning for whole nation) is donated to all people of all nations, who died as a result of war. Volkstrauertag was last Sunday. Next Sunday, we have Totensonntag, the Sunday in commemoration of the dead – all dead people. In our tradition, Totensonntag is the last Sunday before the Advent, the preparation for Christmas.

The photo above was taken on the Britisch Cemetery of Corfu, in Corfu Town, back in May.

Take care!
