Autumn is here! It is the time when leaves fall from the trees, we gather the fruits of the harvest, we eat chestnuts and panellets for the Castanyada and celebrate All Saints Day. In Mexico they also cellebrate El Día de Los Muertos. No doubt, it is a time in which spirits are present, either they are good... or evil.
