Zaduszki



November 1st at Warsaw's Powązki cemetery. The song is a ballad by Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz, sung to music by Adam Strug. People use the day to make visits to cemeteries, putting candles on graves of relatives and wandering around. This is related to, but not exactly, All Soul's Day (it's a lot of older traditions merged with the catholic holiday) and it's called Zaduszki.
