Two residents, dressed in dried banana leaves and their faces covered in mud, prepare to go door-to-door asking for candles as part of the Feast Day of St. John the Baptist in the northern Philippines. The annual tradition is performed in the village of Bibiclat, in the Nueva Ecija province, to pay homage to Saint John the Baptist, believed to have saved the lives of the people in the village years ago.
