The Day of the Dead is a festive day in the country
Family gathering anywhere like Sunday
Getting together mostly at the park or cemetery
Starting from dusk til dawn halloween party.
All Saints’ Day is a day of obligation
It is so-called the Feast of All Saints in our nation
To attend mass as part of the tradition
To pray for all of them as our day’s mission.
All Souls’ Day is also a big celebration
Cleaned tomb ready for the occasion
Others are home to where they belong
Spend time with families and get along.
Praying for the poor souls in purgatory
And all forgotten souls who are lonely
That they may all rest in peace
In God’s loving mercy.
Visiting the grave of our departed ones
Making their spirit happy to see everyone
Offering food and lighting candles must be done
Remembering the love we once shared before they were gone.
It’s the Day of Saints and Souls today
A once a year commemorative activity
So let’s make it more fun and not scary
Join the trick or treat with kids safely.
