All Saint's Day in the Philippines

Today & tomorrow, millions across the Catholic Philippines trooped to cemeteries to honor their dead loved-ones. Aside from Valentine's Day, these are also the busiest times for flower dealers and vendors as well.
During All Saint's Day & All Soul's Day, cemeteries around Manila and Cebu, will be full of vendors selling everything from bottled waters, foods, candles and flowers.

How I wish to be with my family back home at this time of year to be able to lit candles to my beloved Pa & grand-pa:(
