Remembering The Dead And A Horse Race

Its my first time to spend the 1st of November here in Australia, back home we call it All Saint's Day. People go to cemeteries to remember their love ones who already pass away. We offer flowers, candles and prayers to them. Here in Australia, people are busy preparing for the Melbourne Cup, a horse race. Its also a holiday here.

I'd rather remember the dead than watch a horse race which I personally do not understand, but I respect their tradition of celebrating this horse racing day.
