It has been several years since I first came here in Kuwait as an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW). I was able to have a surprise visit to my family in early December 2012. If there is one very important occasion I’ve been missing that would be All Saints Day on November 1st.
Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) like myself definitely miss important Filipino customs and traditions personally celebrated with their families. Being in a foreign land is our choice and we have all the reasons behind this. Wherever we may be, let us not forget to practice good things instilled in us.
Remembering my dearly departed grandparents is precious for me that is why even if I am far away, I still observe All Saints Day through prayers and lighting candles (aroma therapy ones make my room conducive for meditation). I pray for their eternal peace and express my gratitude for all their love and care.
