November 1st is All Saints Day, in Andalucia every year.
The event is generally an opportunity for local people to remember their dearly departed and to hold vigils at the cemeteries.
This sombre activity is far from a sad day, however, as families go to the cemeteries with picnics and the local people often enjoy walks in the countryside after praying for and honouring their dead.
All Saint's Day itself usually involves a feast among locals, as they take the opportunity to celebrate, rather than commiserate, about those who have passed away.
However, it is at night that the event takes on a more spiritual side and visitors will enjoy the impressive sight of residents in villages and towns across Andalucia lighting candles as they fiesta long into the evening.
Traditional foods at the annual feast include roast chestnuts, which will no doubt remind British tourists of the imminent arrival of the festive period, while the tipple of choice is usually anise liqueur.
