Huesos de santo or saint’s bones should top the list of the macabre delicacies.for All Saints Day in Spain. Feasting on the bones of the saint smacks of cannibalism, doesn’t it? But at their most classic they’re really just good old sweets, white marzipan tubes simulating bones stuffed with yema for the bone marrow inside. Some enterprising bakeshops display the “bones” appropriately in “reliquaries”. HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!
The three-day festival of All Saints and Souls Days honor the dearly departed by visiting them in their final resting places. And as such it has nothing to do with trick or treat. Because of Spaniards flocking to the cemeteries, local governments offer extra bus services. In Madrid, the municipal government has acted in character. See the extra bus services here.
