Today is All Saints’ Day! All Saints' Day, or All Hallows’ Day,
is a religious holiday observed by the Anglican and Roman Catholic
churches. All Saints’ Day honors all of the saints, known and unknown,
in Christian history. Dedicating a specific day to individual saints and
martyrs is an ancient Christian tradition, and the Feast of All Saints
can be traced back to 837AD.
All Saints’ Day celebrations take place all across the world. In
Spain, the play Don Juan Tenorio is performed each year. In many
European countries, people bring flowers to the graves of deceased
relatives. In Mexico, All Saints' Day coincides with Día de los Muertos,
or the Day of the Dead.
Did you know that All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints' Day, and All Souls'
Day are known collectively as Hallowtide? Take a moment to remember all
those who have come before you to commemorate the occasion.
