All Souls’ Day in the Philippines

At least once a year, during the month of November, Filipinos troop to cemeteries to visit their departed loved ones on All Souls’ Day.

The annual observance of All Souls’ Day is an opportunity for families to get together.

In many parts of the country, cemeteries look like party places, prompting church leaders to remind the faithful that the day is supposed to be dedicated to the solemn remembrance of the dead.
