Today's Reason to Celebrate

November 1, 2014 is

All Saints' Day

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.
