The official purpose of All Souls’ Day is to remember and pray for the “faithful departed”, especially one’s own relatives and ancestors. It is common for special church services to be held this time of year and for people to light candles for the dead, often even placing them by graves in graveyards.
All Souls’ Day is a public holiday in Timor Leste, and schools and government offices will be closed. Many businesses will shut down for the day as well.
