All Saints Day

When: November 1st

The Christian holiday of All Saint's Day honors and recognizes all of the saints of the christian church, many of which were martyrs. The church sets this day aside to celebrate over 10,000 recognized saints. Historically, All Saints Day was known as Hallomas.

Did you know? All Saints Day and All Souls Day was originally in May. They were moved to November 1st and 2and to downplay the Pagan holidays of Halloween (All Hallow's Eve) and Dia De Loss Muertos. Religious leaders felt these holidays were too popular at the time to ban outright. But, if moved the christian holidays to this time periods, the pagan holidays would slowly die away.......

They could wear black and white for spirit points.  I don't know what that is.  Even my son doesn't!

I was told by the school counselor who only knew a little that it's not a bad thing Day of the Dead. It's something you do to celebrate the ones that have passed that you had a real connection to or something like that. You get out all the pictures you can find of them make their favorite meals and just celebrate. * shrugs* I don't know that is pretty much all she said.
