Commemoration of Undas for OFWs

Aside from the festivities and holidays, one of the most significant occasions in the Philippines is Todos los Santos or All Saints’ Day/All Souls’ Day. It is the time of the year when people gather to celebrate dearly departed family and friends, wherein visiting cemeteries is a must. All Saint’s Day also means instant reunions with family you haven’t seen for a long time.

All Saints’ Day usually starts early in the morning and ends just after dusk. While some people prefer to stay for just a particular period of the day — morning or afternoon — majority of Pinoys choose to spend the whole day in memorial parks and gardens.

Although always popularly attended, there are people who don’t get to celebrate All Saints’ Day with their family. These are Pinoys who are based overseas. This used to be a challenge, but with today’s technology, “bonding” with the family especially for moments like this, is not actually impossible. Here are some ideas on how OFWs can still observe Undas with their loved ones.
