In Tagalog: Undas

Comments Off on In Tagalog: Undas

What is “Undas”?

Translation: This refers to the feast that commemorates the dead, also known as “Araw ng mga Patay” in Tagalog. Undas includes the yearly holidays All Saints Day on Nov. 1 and All Souls Day on Nov. 2.

 

Incorporated in the Tagalog language is the phrase “Todos los Santos” which has a Spanish origin of the same meaning as Undas.
