10 Tips for Surviving All Saints' and All Souls' Days

Keep the stress level low as you make your trip to the memorial park with these tips. By Tala Dayrit

For Filipinos, the holidays known as All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day mean going on a sort of pilgrimage to cemeteries to honor and rememer loved ones who have passed away. However, this also means that these places will be packed with people, and sadly, the solemnity of the occasion is often lost because people rush to get their obligations over and done with.

This can clog up traffic and make the journey much more difficult. Here are some tips to help you minimize the hassle and still make it through in one piece.
