Millions of Filipino’s start flocking to cemeteries as early as November 1, All Saints’ Day, also a Catholic feast honoring all saints, both those who are known and the unknown. According to the report vendors had to sell flowers at higher prices because they could not obtain supplies from Baguio and Benguet in Northern Luzon, the major sources of local flowers. Vendors sold roses at P90 per dozen, more than double the regular price. The report said that prices of flowers went up even in the Dangwa district in Manila, where flowers are known to be sold at lower prices.
