the halloween spirit
Police in the Philippines are alerting citizens about fake priests looking to make a quick buck this Halloween.
The Manila North Cemetery warned that people dressed in priest costumes could be lurking in the graveyards. When people go to the cemeteries to honor their lost loved ones for All Saints' and All Souls' Days, the fake priests allegedly offer prayers or blessings — in exchange for "donations." Daniel Tan, the cemetery's administrator, said visitors should verify the priests' authority with the cemetery staff or the police.
