I must say, on holidays like this, I ain't no expert.
But from my observations, I'd say it's pretty equivalent to the U.S.'s Memorial Day
With an addition of praying for dead relatives.
But the best part of Dia Dos Finados is the flowers.
It's become a bit of a tradition,
Going to the market to buy flowers on November 2nd.
Lindsay and I got all sorts of cheap, beautiful flowers this morning.
I paid from the change that had been collecting in the jar on my bedside table.
That means they were basically free, right?
And now my apartment is tão bonita.
