A time for the souls
Its holiday in the Philippines for November 1 & 2 to celebrate All Saints Day and All Soul's Day respectively. During this time, families are busy going home to their provinces to visit their beloved ones in the cementery giving some respect by bringing some flowers, candles, and most important to offer some prayers. Usually this is the time that i spend 2 whole days in the cementary at my fathers grave. But so sad to say that i cant visit him this time or maybe for years to come since it is not that easy for me to go home to the Philippines. Though people here in Netherlands dont practice this kind of holiday but good thing to know that my church where i usually attend mass will have a special mass tomorrow(November 2) intended for this. So i will be there tomorrow night to attend the mass.
