All Saints Day

All Saints Day on November 1 holds religious significance in the Western Christian tradition, observed by the Roman Catholic Church, the Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church, and others. The purpose is to pay homage and reverence to both canonized and unknown saints. In some faiths, it also involves expressing gratitude to those who have guided others to Christ, such as friends or relatives. All Saints' Day incorporates various traditions globally, including placing flowers on graves on November 1 and the Mexican Day of the Dead, which honors departed children on the holiday's first day. Additionally, Halloween in the U.S. and Canada, originally connected to All Saints' Day, has become a distinct celebration.
