A Flower to Remember the Lost

Pasay City, Manila Philippines (PressExposure) November 10, 2008 -- Now that All Saints Day is right in front of our doors and All Souls Day is fast approaching, flower shops and sidewalk flower vendors are now everywhere to be found in all parts of the Philippines selling flowers to Filipinos going to churches and cemeteries.

It has been customary for Filipinos to remember and offer offerings such as flowers to their departed loved ones when the 2nd of November comes. But not just the Filipinos, but all Christians all over the world.

All Souls' Day commemorates the faithful departed. Among Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Christians there are several All Souls' Days during the year. Most of these fall on Saturday, since it was on a Saturday that Jesus Christ lay in the Tomb, and are referred to as Soul Saturdays. Saturdays throughout the year are devoted to general prayer for the departed, unless some greater feast or saint's commemoration occurs.

Christians traditionally offer flowers to their departed loved ones or friends when All Souls Day arrives. Flowers in these times are on huge demand, especially those arranged in wreaths or in bouquets. When these days arrive, flowers can get a little too pricey, particularly in the Philippines.
