All Saints Day, a Catholic holiday to reflect on the saints and deceased relatives.
All Saints’ Day (in the Roman Catholic Church officially the Solemnity of All Saints and also called All Hallows or Hallowmas), often shortened to All Saints, is a solemnity celebrated on 1 November by parts of Western Christianity, and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in Eastern Christianity, in honour of all the saints, known and unknown. In the Western calendar it is the day after Halloween and the day before All Souls’ Day. In Western Christian theology, the day commemorates all those who have attained the beatific vision in Heaven.
