November 2nd is a day for honoring loved ones, friends and family, who have passed on. It is celebrated differently in many regions around the world, from Latin American to Africa; here is a glimpse of this special day in Nicaragua.
Here, flowers rule the holiday.
The front of the cemetery becomes an impromptu florist market.
Visitors purchase flower bouquets and bundles outside the cemetery gates, many prepared with vases, buckets of water, and ribbons.
It is a day for reconnecting with old friends, and remembering.
