All Souls’ Day atmosphere, having an early start in Boracay

Toy figures of skeletons, bats, bleeding white ladies, witches, and other scary creatures.

These are just some of the eye-catching scenery at station 2 in Boracay that people, residents and foreigners alike, are taking pictures of.

All Souls’ Day is yet to come, but some of the resorts in the area have already started decorating with Halloween themes as an additional tourist attraction.

One of the resorts’ Dining Supervisor, Wilson, said that they have been preparing for this day for some three years.

Wilson added that the “props” they have prepared are considerably costly and were carefully made, that they spent a number of days making it, and it would be such a waste to just remove it after the Halloween.

Aside from the panoramic lighting every night, it also very noticeable, how they artistically decorated their “props,” designed with the help of their female Boss who is an interior decorator.

 Despite its theme which is “horror,” the children, instead of getting scared, are conversely enjoying it, posing and taking pictures.

Meanwhile, some shops at Brgy. Balabag are also starting to sell masks of grotesque and or scary figures, which are quite expensive at almost Php200 per piece, but is of a good quality assured the sales personnel.

On the other hand, the Catholic Church said that it is ok if some people in Boracay have started with the activity, what matters, it added, is the presence of respect and giving importance to the memory of those loved ones who had passed.
