The 1st of November, All Saints day is the day when all the Saints are honoured. This day was included into the Christian calendar in VII century by the Pope Boniface IV. All Saints day became a Christian celebration in 988 when it was started to commemorate by French monks Benedictines. Later it came to Lithuania as a Catholic celebration. However there already was an All Saints day tradition that came from agrarian magic practiced by farmers. During this day people burn candles and visit relatives’ cemeteries.
