What exactly is All Souls Day? Well it’s the day that follows All Saints’ Day and is sometimes called Day of the Dead. All Soulds Day is always on November 2nd. This is a Roman Catholic day of remebrance for family, friends or any loved ones that have passed away. This is derived from an ancient Pagan Festival of the Dead. It is celebrated through the Pagan belief that the souls of the dead would return to have a meal with the family.
Purposly it follows All Saints Day in order to shift the focus between those in heaven and purgatory.
