Halloween is fast approaching! Have you decided what your costume will be??

間もなくHalloweenがやってきますね!‼

もう、仮装は何をするか決めましたか⁇

In The Philippines, Halloween does not happen

on a single night.

フィリピンのハロウィンは1日だけではないのです。

🎃Halloween Eve🎃

As early as October 31st on Halloween, most people are busily preparing for the next day.

Many people have already purchased the flowers, candles, and picnic supplies that they plan to bring to the cemeteries the following day.

フィリピンのハロウィンでは宗教的な行事としても非常に重要なのです。

日本のお盆と同じく、この時期は田舎へ戻ってお墓参りをします。

🎃November 1st🎃

This is the day where the cemeteries and memorial parks are jampacked with people visiting their relatives’ graves.

Relatives gather together and spend their whole day in the cemetery. Halloween serves as a miniature reunion for families and friends who only get to see each other once a year.

11/1は全ての聖人と殉教者を称える日となり、弁当を持って墓でピクニックをします。

🎃November 2nd🎃

Many people who don’t want to join the crowd on November 1st usually visit cemeteries on November 2nd!!

混雑を避けるために11月1日を避けて2日に行く人もいます。

This is also the time where most of the people spend their time traveling back home in order to resume work the following day.

👆That’s Halloween, the Filipino style!👆

これがフィリピンスタイルのハロウィンです。

It’s quite different from Halloween in other countries but rest assure you will have just as much fun.

他の国とはかなり違うスタイルですが、とても楽しいです。

You might think that Halloween in The Philippines is boring but it’s not! Really, spending Halloween in the cemetery is a lot of fun indeed.

お墓でハロウィンなんてフィリピンのハロウィンは楽しくないと思うかもしれませんが、本当に楽しいです。

For families and friends who only get to see each other once a year, This day acts as a miniature reunion.

1年に1度家族や友達に会える、この日は大切です。

Best of all, foods and drinks flow freely, with most individuals exchanging overflowing baskets of home-cooked delicacies.

家庭で作った料理や飲み物などを交換したりをします。

Vendors stand by around the cemeteries selling extra items for those who run out of food, drinks, candles, or even flowers.

お墓のまわりには出店もあり、食べ物や飲み物、ろうそくやお花などが売られています。
