All Saints' Day

The festival of All Saints, also sometimes known as All Saints' Day, All Hallows or Hallowmas ("hallows" meaning "saints," and "mas" meaning "Mass"), is a feast celebrated November 1 in honour of all the saints, known and unknown. - source
My family went to the cemetery last Saturday to visit Jules' grandparents. All Souls' Day actually falls every 2nd day of November but visiting the departed every 1st of November has become a yearly tradition for many Filipino families.
