Some Quechua traditions have mixed with Roman Catholic ones in the way Peruvians observe this holiday.

Everyone attends All Saints’ Day mass in the morning. Along the coasts, people then adorn cemeteries with flowers, but in highland regions, they tend to bring food items for the deceased instead.

In some villages of Peru, people give special food gifts, like bread rolls shaped like babies or candied sweet potatoes, to children who remind them of a child they lost the previous year.
