All Saints Day
“A saint is one who makes goodness
Dear Friends and
Today's theme calls for gloomy weather, but here in Fayetteville, it really isn't. It's ranging from partly cloudy to cloudy, but I wouldn't call it gloomy at all - and that's just fine with me!
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHVv79W_EpA - All Saints' Hymn: "For All The Saints" - Big Sing, October 24, 2004 - sing-along version
|All Saints' Day is a celebration of all Christian saints,
particularly those who have no special feast days of their own, in many
Roman Catholic, Anglican and Protestant churches. In many western
churches it is annually held November 1 and in many eastern churches it
is celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost. It is also known as
All Hallows Tide, All-Hallomas, or All Hallows' Day.
What do people do?
All Saints' Day is observed by Christians in many countries around the world. In countries such as Spain, Portugal and Mexico, offerings are made on this day. In countries such as Belgium, Hungary and Italy people bring flowers to the graves of dead relatives. In other parts of Europe, such as Austria, Croatia, Poland, and Romania, it is customary to light candles on top of visiting graves of deceased relatives. It is also observed in parts of Asia, such as the Philippines, where people visit graves of deceased relatives and clean or repair them. They also lay flowers on the graves and light candles.
In France church services in memory of all the saints are held on November 1 but by the evening the focus turns towards the dead. Cemeteries everywhere are crowded with people who come to clean and decorate family graves. All Saints' Day is closely tied with All Souls' Day, held on November 2, which is dedicated to prayers of the dead who are not yet glorified.
... It is not a nationwide public holiday in countries such as Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, or the United States. However, many Christians observe All Saints’ Day in these and other countries.
The liturgical color is white on All Saints' Day...

|Overall I'm pretty
pleased with our double-sided jack-o-lantern this year.
I didn't have time to
sculpt out Aang, so I just put the outline, but I've never sculpted a
pumpkin before and all I had was a couple of Exacto knives, so I'm
pretty happy with the results.
WOWZERONI-RINI! Thank you, Dale! What an awesome job you did!

For All the Saints- Lyrics by Anglican Bishop William Walsham How
For all the saints
who from their labors rest,
Who thee by faith
before the world confessed.
Thy name, O Jesus,
be forever blest.
Thou wast their Rock,
their Fortress and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their captain
in the well-fought fight;
Thou, in the darkness drear,
their one true light.
O may Thy soldiers,
faithful, true, and bold,
Fight as the saints
who nobly fought of old,
And win with them
the victor's crown of gold.
And when the strife is fierce,
the warfare long,
Steals on the ear
the distant triumph song,
And hearts are brave again,
and arms are strong.
From earth's wide bounds,
from ocean's farthest coast,
Thro' gates of pearl
streams in the countless host,
Singing to Father,
Son, and Holy Ghost,
