All Saints Day: November 1, 2010

Today is All Saints day, a day when we remember all those who lived and died for the Lord Jesus Christ. Originally celebrated in May and celebrated by the Orthodox the Sunday after Pentecost, the purpose of it partially to remember those saints not remembered in the calender, and a day to remember that when we became Christians, we too became Saints.

The Roman Catholic Church moved the feast to November 1st to counteract the popular Druidic rites of Samhaim.
