All Saints Day

Hi everyone! As I noticed that Halloween has been a big event for most of you but  here in the Philippines, we are looking forward for the coming of All Saints Day. This is the time we remember our love ones who passed away and visit them in the cemetery. Mostly before this day or as early as last week of October you can see so many flower vendors along with the many who sell candles. These are one of the many cultures we've got  from the Spaniards. 


I have fond memories commemorating All Saints day in my childhood days. We normally visit the cemetery two days in a row, November 1st which is All Saints day then we'll come back again the next day for All Souls day. It's a visitation  until night time with lighted candles and bright shade of moon. Aside from visiting our love ones it's also the chance for us, my childhood friends and relatives to be reunited again. It's very endearing to see each other in person since most of us are living apart. It's one of the Holidays that we're looking forward to come.

  3. Aww :) Growing up in Manila, I have fond memories of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day too!

    We would start it off with a wonderful, fun trick or treating event at my Aunt's neighborhood and then go to the cemetery to visit our loved ones who have passed. We even stay over for the night in little tents!

    In LA, it's all about pumpkins and costumes and parades. I will be going to mass tonight though :)
