All Saints Day, on November 1, is a Christian festival that honors all saints, known and unknown. It is a national holiday in many traditionally-Catholic countries.
All Saints Day is part of Allhallowtide (All Saints Eve, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day). All Saints Day celebrations start on All Saints Eve (All Hallows Eve or Halloween).
Honoring the saints encourages us by example to live with integrity and love.
