Olive Wood Saint Statues Hand-Carved in the Holy Land | Bethlehem Handicrafts
All Saints' Day, which is also known as All Hallows' Day, Hallowmas, the Feast of All Saints, or Solemnity of All Saints, is a Christian solemnity celebrated in honor of all the saints, known and unknown.
In Western Christianity, it is celebrated on November 1 by most churches. November 1 is also the day before All Souls' Day. It is thus the day before All Souls' Day, which commemorates the faithful departed.
