All Saint's Day 2023 Date

All Saints’ Day, which is also called Hallowmas or  Feast of All Saints, is a day in the Christian church, that commemorates all the saints of churches, whether known or not, and who have gained heaven. In the Western churches, it is observed on November 1st, and the first Sunday after Pentecost in the Eastern churches. In Roman Catholicism, the feast must be made on a holy day. This year the day will be celebrated or observed on Wednesday, November 1, 2023.

History of All Saints' Day

From the 4th century AD, feasts remembering all Christian martyrs were held in different places, on different days around Easter and Pentecost. In the 9th century, some churches in the British Isles began commemorating all saints on November 1, and by the 9th century, Pope Gregory IV had extended the practice to the entire Catholic Church.

All Saints’ Day was formally initiated by Pope Boniface IV, who consecrated the Pantheon in Rome to the Virgin Mary and all the Martyrs on April 13, 609. Boniface IV also instituted All Souls’ Day, which follows All Saints.

The choice of this date may have been designed to co-opt the pagan holiday “Feast of the Lemures”, a day used by pagans to appease the restless spirits of the dead.

In Western Christianity, November 1 is celebrated for All Saints' Day in the Roman Catholic Church as well as in many Protestant churches, as in the Lutheran, Anglican, and Methodist traditions.

The Eastern Orthodox Church and its associated Eastern Catholic and Lutheran churches celebrate it on the first Sunday after Pentecost.

The Church of the East the Syro-Malabar Church and the Chaldean Catholic Church, the latter in common with Rome, celebrate All Saints' Day on the first Friday after Easter Sunday while in Coptic Orthodox tradition, All Saints’ Day is on Nayrouz, which is celebrated on September 11th.

This Holy Day practice varies around the globe. In the United States, the first day of celebration is Halloween, and death-themed costumes are celebrated. Kids go from house to house in costume, trick-or-treating, asking for candy from their neighbors. The holiday has little to do with its religious origins.

While almost everyone celebrates Halloween for secular holiday fun, this ultimate religious solemnity is not widely known or shared by most Americans unless they are Catholic.

How to Celebrate All Saints' Day?

There are numerous ways to celebrate the pious day. Below we discussed 5 Best Ways To Celebrate All Saints' Day –

1. Explain the significance of Halloween and All Saints’ Day

Sit down with your kids or younger and talk about the difference and connection between Halloween and All Saints’ Day. Halloween (All Hallow’s Eve) has been stolen by our pagan culture and now represents darkness instead of the holy (hallowed) saints. You can also explain the Church’s doctrine of the Communion of Saints and meditate on the beauty of those friends who have already passed and strengthened us in our heavenly home.

2. Throw All Saints' Day Feast

In our co-op Catholic homeschool, each participating family brings a toy and a treat for distribution. Have kids dress up as their favorite saints and take turns explaining the story of their saints. Co-op’s All Saints’ Day Party is a highlight of the liturgical year!

3. Decorate Your House

4. Go to Mass

Participate with the saints around the church and partake of the riches of grace offered freely at God’s table. After all, this is a Holy Day, and it is just as important as going on Sunday!

5. Read about at least a Saint Story
