Honoring the Dead in Germany

posted in: Bamberg, Europe, Germany | 1

Throwback Tuesday Post (TBTP) from 2010: November 1 is a day of honoring past family members in Germany. But it isn't like Day of the Dead in Mexico. Families do visit the cemetery, but the mood is somber, just like the weather.
