3. Exchange ghost stories and scare your cousins until one of you cries and tells you on their nanay.

4. Go house to house and sing songs about All Saints' Day in exchange for cash because who needs candy.

5. Play with fire.

Jgh sa sementeryo. 👻👻 Napagtripan lang ang kandila 🔥😂😂

'Yung literal, bes. Wag kang ano.

6. Gather all the wax from melted candles and turn them into balls.

7. Or play with the melted wax while it's still hot because life is pain.

8. Go home to our provinces just so we can pay respects to the dead.

9. Visit our dead relatives at the cemetery.

10. But not before we've cleaned the heck out of their graves days before the actual All Saints' Day.

11. And not without bringing the most beautiful flowers from Dangwa.

12. All Saints' Day is such an important holiday for Filipinos that some even dress for the, uhm, occasion.

MOWDELING.

13. Make tambay on top of the puntod like it's nobody's business the WHOLE DAY.

14. AND NIGHT.

15. And we all come with the whole family, of course.

16. And because it's basically a family reunion, food is always in order. Our undas fave? Suman.

17. Of course, our dead loved ones also get a treat.

18. We also light some candles in front of our houses so our departed relatives won't visit us.

19. And of course, the peaceful holiday won't be complete without the appearance of epal politicians in the form of tarpaulins.
