will prepare the graves for the celebration days in advance. Because
it is believed that the souls of the children return to our world
on October 31st at about 3pm, it is about that time when the cemeteries
truly come alive. At night on October 31st is when families start
holding vigils at the gravestones. All the candles are lit, and
the offerings and flowers decorate the tombstones. This will continue
until the mid-afternoon of November 2nd.
