People dress up and visit the cemetery of their departed loved ones. They tend the graves: remove old, dead flowers and leaves, replace them with a new bouquet or potted plant.
They meet people they haven't seen for a while, maybe since the same time last year. This is respectful but not always somber as they have a chance to catch up with old friends.

The candles on this grave: respect and remembrance.

Be well today and remember those you've lost,
