Todos Los Santos - Uniquely Filipino Holiday

Todos Los Santos is a very unique Filipino Holiday. We honor and remember our dead and consider them as saints, thus the uncommon visit to them on November 1 (Instead of November 2, which is All Souls Day).

It is also a good time to reunite with relatives in the cemetery. This goes to show how we really value our family and the closeness and togerthness that we all have with each other.

The shots below were taken at Alitagtag Cemetery in Batangas. I could've picked Manila Memorial where my Lolo (Father's side) was buried, but opted to choose this location since you get the feel the way the province celebrates this holiday.
