On All Souls’ Day, families visit cemeteries to dance, drink, eat, and leave flowers and other offerings for deceased friends and relatives in a convivial ceremony designed to celebrate the lives of those who have passed on. It is a relic of the days when making a lot of noise was believed to frighten away the evil spirits. Schools often do not have windows but instead have large open frames that can be battened down during storms. Celebrations vary from family to family but generally include singing, dancing, playing African drums, storytelling, poetry reading, and eating a large traditional meal.
