|All Souls’ Day is a day of alms giving and prayers for the dead. The
intent is for the living to assist those in purgatory. Many western
churches annually observe All Souls’ Day on November 2 and many eastern
churches celebrate it prior to Lent and the day before Pentecost.
What do people do?
... All Souls’ Day is not a nationwide public holiday but is observed
in some Christian churches in countries such as Australia, Canada, the
United Kingdom and the United States.
