MARIKINA CITY, PHILIPPINES  A man places candles on the crypt of a loved one at a public cemetery as All Saint's Day is celebrated on November 1, 2013 in Marikina City, Philippines. As the largest Catholic nation in Asia this public holiday allows Filipinos to visit the family cemeteries for overnight and weekend vigils. They bring candles and flowers and pay respects to departed loved ones. Offices and schools close as the usually silent graveyards become a party with food and music.
