Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday called on Negrenses to pray for the dead on All Saints and All Souls Day.
Let us also thank God for sparing Negros Occidental from man-made and natural calamities, he said.
He also urged Negrenses on holiday not to drink too much alcoholic liquor to avoid getting drunk, and to stay safe.
The police in Negros Occidental and Bacolod City are on heightened alert for the holidays.
Meanwhile, work at all courts nationwide will be only up to noon today, SC spokesman Theodore Te said yesterday.
