what made us light candles outside our home during Nov. 1 and 2?

We don't usually light candles outside the house just inside. But last year we put floating candles on a big basin and floated some flowers too to commemorate the deaths of our loved ones. The lighting of candles outside the house was just another way of lighting candles. But I think most people light candles outside to ward off evil spirits or a symbol that the souls departed can see they were remembered. I really don't know.
