All Saints' Day

“Oh how the candles will be lit and the wood of worm burn in a fiery dust. For on all Hallow's Eve will the spirits come to play, and only the fruit of thy womb will satisfy their endless roaming.”  ~ Solange Nicole

All Saints' Day or Todos los Santos is celebrated in the Philippines today, November 1st.  Filipinos observe this day solemnly by visiting graves of dead relatives, offering prayers and flowers, lighting candles, cleaning and repairing graves.
