    "you dont see in any other catholic nation" actually Philippines celebrate all souls day kind of similar to this. Although there are no festivals, Filipinos usually go to the cemetery to eat together and have fun with relatives and offer food to the dead love ones. In my experience, all souls day is the time where me and my relatives get together in the cemetery and bond.

    We call it Rosemary but its actually a kind of quelite of the season.

  12. Ven Jordan on December 26, 2021 at 1:40 am

    I think the Philippines got this tradition from the Mexicans way back the Spanish colonization. Up until now, we still do this tradition giving food for the dead loved ones especially on Nov. 1 and 2.

  13. Daniel Arciniega on December 26, 2021 at 1:42 am

    Even Mexico’s City parade is 6 years old, such parades are common in other cities around Mexico way before that one.

  14. ladev91 on December 26, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Mexico’s Day of the Dead is great, I wish we celebrated it, remembering the people we Love that have moved on to the after life. I hope they are allowed to be with us on that day. Maybe soon we’ll get Mexican neighbors or Church Members that would teach us how to celebrate this Holiday
