November 1 and 2 are big holidays here in the Philippines.
The cemeteries become like fair grounds with people camping by the grave of a loved one, vendors selling food, plastic light up toys, candles, flowers, balloons....families having reunions at the graveside of loved ones.
It's quite a spectacle.
We walked around the cemetery where Jerard is buried yesterday. We placed flowers on his grave but didn't camp out or have a picnic there, though we did enjoy some of the edible delights of the vendors.
Hopefully I can post some pictures soon. (The pics above are from a local website posted from this holiday weekend here in Davao).Kurt took some photos on his tablet. I'm waiting for him to load them onto the computer. I'm really praying for a camera for Christmas!!!
