November 1 means a time to remember departed loved ones in the Philippines. Filipinos travel out to the provinces just for this occasion. As families gather in cemeteries to offer prayers and bring flowers and light candles for the dead. Most would stay till dawn for chitchat, some nostalgia or merriment or even just to keep the dead company.
Hope everyone had a really scary Halloweenie! and festive Todos Los Santos! (Feast of All Saints).
