I am Luso-Canadian, living in Canada. When i was very young, i remember my relatives wore black when my grandfather on my mother’s side passed away, for period of time. My parents wore black for a year, when my grandfather on my dad’s side passed away.
I don’t remember them wearing black when my grandma died, though.
I know that some widows will wear black for the rest of their lives.
Is this still a tradition that is practiced in Portugal? Are there rules around it? Google says people still do this, but I wanted to get feedback from real Portuguse people.
