All Saints Day: What is this occasion and why is it celebrated?

Christians around the world mark All Saints Day on November 1, a day when “heaven comes that much closer to this side of eternity,” as a Catholic priest told Fox News Digital this week. 

Also known as “All Hallows’ Day” or the “Solemnity of All Saints,” All Saints Day is a celebration of saints, both known and unknown. 

It is followed by All Souls Day, observed on November 2. 

“For us, it’s a day to thank God for the faithful witness of St. Peter and St. Paul, but also our sainted mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, and any other beloved Christian who now joins our song of praise from the other side of paradise,” said Fiene.
