Remembering Your Loved Ones on All Saint's Day

Do you have a family member who already passed away? If yes, how do you remember him or her? Here in the Philippines, we have a holiday where we visit our loved ones who already passed away. Our grandfathers, grandmothers, mother, father, sister and other family members who we're already with our Lord. We call this holiday "All Saint's Day.

Do you have a family member who already passed away? If yes, how do you remember him or her? Here in the Philippines, we have a holiday where we visit our loved ones who already passed away. Our grandfathers, grandmothers, mother, father, sister and other family members who we're already with our Lord. We call this holiday "All Saint's Day every first of November. But not everyone of us celebrate this holiday. It depends on your religion if you believe on All Saint's Day or not. Those religion of "Iglesia Ni Cristo" don't believe in this holiday. But some of their devotees lights up candles and offer prayers on their loved ones. It really depends if you have remembered them or not.

During this time, we bring flowers and light up candles on our loved ones grave. Others even buy flowers from flower shops and even ask for a flower arangement. Others just bring the flowers they have picked on their garden. Families offer prayers to their loved ones once they are in the cemetery, in their family member's grave.

This holiday is the best time for all the family members see each other and have a get together. Family members who often see each other could use this time to talk and spend more time with each other during this season. Other families will have their own Halloween party. Where sometimes each member will wear a costume. Children will go to houses and will have trick or treat. This culture is also being done by those who lives in other countries especially those in America.

While in cemetery, here in our country, there are some people who take advantage of this and find a way to earn. Some sells food, load and children of young ages will gather those candles that have been melted and make a big ball of candle and sell it to those who buys candle wax. I myself did this when I was a kid. I turned the melted candle from our grandfather's tomb into a big ball of candle or sometimes I put it in a plastic or a plastic cup and sells it.

How about you? How do you spend your All Saint's Day? What do you do to remember your family members who already passed away? Do you also live in the Philippines and did the candle thingy? If yes, then you have definitely enjoyed your childhood years here in the Philippines. Let me know how you celebrate this season by yourself or with your family.
