Cemetery Candles and Laterns or “Wszystkich Świętych” znicze in Polish


All Saints Day in Poland at Night

A typical scene at graveyards around Poland on All Saints Day.

Poland is a very religious country, specifically, a very Roman Catholic country. Because of this, many of the Roman Catholic holidays are very much revered in Poland and throughout the Polish diaspora. One such holiday, All Saints Day or Wszystkich Świętych , is no exception.

All Saints’ Day is observed every year on November 1st, the day after the US holiday of Halloween. In fact, All Saints’ Day is the reason there is a Halloween! It is believed in Poland and other Roman Catholic countries that their departed loved ones souls visit them on the night of All Saints’ Day. The following day, All Souls’ Day or Dzien Zaduszny, is often observed as a religious holiday too as many people visit their loved one’s graves during night.

As you can see from the picture above, graveyards in Poland are decorated with different colored glass candle holders. These candle lanterns, or znicze in Polish, light up even the darkest parts of graveyards throughout Poland. It is a beautiful way to remember those lost and the whole night can be a very overwhelming sight to those new to All Saints Day. Typically, no grave is left unadorned. Graves forgotten or lost are visited and so are the graves of strangers or National heroes.

Dom itp is proud to carry the largest selection of these candle holders or znicze in the United States. As in Poland, znicze, come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Some are very elaborately decorated while others are a simple red or white. To view all entire collection of znicze, feel free to visit our online store at Domitp.com!
