About the event

In the years and decades that followed, various influential figures in the church and government used their power to make All Saints’ Day an official observance in different Christian sects and denominations. Today, the holiday is also known — depending on the location and branch of the church — as All Hallows’ Day, Hallowmas, the Feast of All Saints, and the Solemnity of All Saints. Customs and traditions for this day vary from region to region, but for one example, in Italy, it’s common to visit family members and exchange gifts — with special honor shown to those who are named after saints themselves.
