The “Fiesta de los Finados” is our own canarian traditional celebration the night before All Saint´s Day ( the 31st October) that cannot be compared with the popular Halloween.

On this day the youngest in the family should catch a bag and visit house to house  asking for “saints” ( referring to dried fruits). ). In the evening the family would come together, eat roasted chestnuts, sweets called "huesos de santo" ("Bones of The Saints"), drink anise and honey rum and share anectdotes about dead members of the family.
