All Saints' Day
Start Date: 11/1/2014 All Day
End Date: 11/1/2014
Event Description:
Roman Catholic and Protestant Christian holyday: For Catholics, All Saints’ Day is a solemnity for all the saints, especially those who do not have their own feast day. Services on the night before gave it the name All Hallows’ Eve (Halloween) and appear to have been purposely planned on top of the Celtic Pagan Festival of the Dead, Samain. Similarly, Dia De Los Meurtos is a mixture of the Catholic Church’s All Saints’ Day and Aztec traditions from 3,000 years ago. For Protestants, All Saints’ Day is a time to remember all those who have died in one’s family and congregation (like All Souls’ Day for Catholics).[i]
