Preparing for the All Souls' and All Saints' Days

I went to church early this morning and we were told by our priest that we will go to the cemetery in order to help clean the area. I went home immediately and went downtown in order to buy something that we needed. I'm planning to call my cousin so that I can hire him to clean my great grandparents' graves. These graves are not cleaned regularly by my other relatives so last year I had the surroundings cleaned. So this year, I'll also do what I did last year.

I might sleep it off this coming All saints day specially when it comes to staying in the grave of my grandfather.
