All Saints' Day
It is All Saints' Day in the Philippines in 1st of November. In Iloilo City, ad hoc flower shops were appeared at the Central Market and surrounding streets. The people prepares flowers for welcoming their ancestor's souls back from heaven once a year. Some people go back to their home town and give flower and candle on their ancestors grave.
I woke up at six o'clock and walk down to the market to watch their flower shopping, and I found that vivid yellow chrysanthemum were seen at most shops.
