All Saints Day
Date When Celebrated: 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 Hallowmas.
All Saints Day and All Souls Day was originally in May. They were moved to November 1 and November 2, to downplay the Pagan holidays of Halloween (All Hollow's Eve) and Dia De Los 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.......
In ancient Rome, All Saints Day was called the "Feast of the Nameless Martyrs".
