Best season to see Famadihana is August, september and october. Famadihana is a “turning over the bones” consisting in wrapping again the dead with new sheets. Mainly silk sheets. It’s very important traditional family event. Depending on each family, the Malagasy celebrate this event between once a year and once in ten years,with a party that can last three days during which some families spend their whole savings. During Famadihana, most families have little parade along the street( to show to the dead what has happened in the meantime), where they carry the dead body along, often accompanied by a brass hand.
