Where the dead are

Tradition is what binds the Filipino people.

While other countries celebrate Halloween, putting on their best costumes knocking on doors trick-or-tricking, the Filipinos have something different in mind. For so many countless years, Filipinos have this tradition of visiting their dead on the 1st of November. I, too, am part of this tradition for nine years now.

The cemetery atmosphere actually transforms from a creepy environment to being fiesta-like.

But this one didn’t want to lose its horror vibe.
