1 November All Saints' Day


wszystkich swietych

The 1st of November, celebrated in Poland as a holiday, is not the Feast of the Dead, as the communist authorities in Poland wanted (because it could be a holiday of the dead, ghosts, monsters, vampires or anyone, just not saints).

The dead don't celebrate anything on this day... at least not in Poland.

It is a holiday of the living, who want to express their respect and love for their ancestors, for their loved ones, absent in body, but who are still present among us, the living. It is, in a sense, the feast of immortality, a feast during which the memories of those who have passed away are revived, but are still alive in our hearts, memories and remembrance.

The first director of this organization was Julian Sorell Huxley, an evolutionary biologist, grandson of Thomas Henri Huxley, a deep believer in Darwin's evolutionary theory. On the initiative of French socialist activist Leon Blum, UNESCO's headquarters were moved to Paris.
