In this episode I talk about All Saints Day that is celebrated in Sweden today, November 5. We go to the cemeteries and light candles remembering our loved ones.
On November 6 it is Gustaf Adolf Day in Sweden. In memory of king Gustaf II Adolf who died on that day in 1632.
Second Sunday in November we celebrate fathers day.
