All Saints’ Day is a holy day in the Catholic calendar set aside to honor all the saints, especially those without their own special feast days. It is celebrated on November 1 in the Catholic church and Eastern Christian churches celebrate it during the month of June.
In Mexico the day is known as 'Dia de los Muertos', or the Day of the Dead and is a two-day celebration that combines Catholic tradition and pre-Columbian culture. The first day is dedicated to "angelitos" (little angels), who are infants and children that have died. Adults who have died are memorialized on the second day.
In the classroom: Is your school called after a saint? Or is there a notable building in your area called after a saint? Why not do a small project on this saint - what did he/she do and why were they named as a saint.
