STA. ANA -- Local traders here have doubled their earnings as a consequence of the preparation for “Undas.”
According to them, business activities during this season are “active” with the sudden increase of marketgoers.
“Isa ito sa mga inaabangan nating panahon tulad din ng Mahal na Araw kung saan gumaganda ang kita natin (We are waiting for this season, since we earn double),” said Angelina Duenas, a market vendor here.
Duenas said among the hot goods in the market now are candles, flowers, meat, vegetables and fruits.
“Madami kasing tao. Mayroon pang mga dayuhan na bumisita sa kanilang mga kamag-anak dito para sa paggunita sa kanilang namayapang mahal sa buhay (Tourists also come here to visit their dead relatives),” she added.
Meanwhile, the local police reminded residents to refrain from bringing liquor, pointed and bladed objects in the cemetery to avoid inconvenience as they celebrate All Saints’ and Souls’ Day.
