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 sunny to mostly cloudy with temperatures ranging from 67 to 77, so I wouldn't call it gloomy at all - and that's just fine with me!
BONUS - 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...

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/31/18 - "Some of these statistic numbers are astounding. (#1 in a series of 18)":
numbers are based on a single day. The one that may not be clear is the 5000 -
an estimate of how many steps the average person takes in a day. I don't know if
anyone else will find these of interest, or as much as I do, but one thing that
stood out to me is the imbalance in the numbers. Our dependence on technology is
clear. It is certainly a blessing in many ways; just hope it does not make life
WOW! Thank you, Shari!

|The little boy greeted his grandmother with a
hug and said, "I'm so happy to see you, Grandma! Now maybe Daddy will do
the trick he has been promising us."
The grandmother was curious. "What trick is that, my dear?" she asked.
The little boy replied, "I heard Daddy tell Mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit us again."
