While most of the people of Burkina Faso subscribe to Islam, about a quarter follow Christianity. And the great majority of Christians in Burkina Faso are Roman Catholic, to whom the holy day called All Saints’ Day often has great meaning.
As in France and other “Francophone” nations in Africa and throughout the world, Catholics in Burkina Faso celebrate All Saints’ Day by decorating the graves of deceased loved ones with floral wreaths. If possible, the Toussaint is the flower of choice for this purpose.
