All Saint's Day

Every year in our country, we celebrate November 1 as All Saint's Day and November 2 as All Soul's Day. November 1 is always declared a holiday because most people visit the grave of their loved ones. My family usually visit my dad's grave every November 1 and we stay there for quite awhile or during late afternoon and went home at night time. Some people are so used to put up a tent and sleep beside the grave overnight. That may be amusing to others but we're used to the practice of our fellowmen and we'll just respect them as long as they won't make a noise or make a mess. But my family always go home or find a place to dine and continue our conversation somewhere =)

But since I've a little tot this time, my husband and I thought of not staying so long at the cemetery as not to expose her, especially that we learned from the news that there might be a slight rain shower on that day. What is important is that I'll be able to visit my dad's grave, pray for him, see my other family and then go home ;-)
