The Feast of All Saints, also known as All Saints’ Day, is celebrated annually on November 1st by many Christian denominations. It is a day dedicated to honoring all the saints, known and unknown, who have attained heaven. Originating in the early Christian church as a day to remember Christian martyrs, it has evolved to include all saints, canonized or not. In many cultures, it’s a public holiday and is often associated with various customs, like attending church services, lighting candles on the graves of the dead, and processions. Coming a day before All Souls’ Day, which remembers the faithfully departed, All Saints’ Day is part of the larger Hallowtide triduum, which also includes Halloween. It serves as a reminder of the universal call to holiness and the communion of saints in Christian belief.
