The observance of All Souls' Day was spread throughout Europe by Saint Odilo of Cluny in the early 11th century. Like All Hallows' Eve and All Saints' Day, family members often attend mass and visit the graves of their deceased loved ones, placing flowers and lighted candles there.
All Souls’ Day is part of Allhallowtide. All Souls’ Day takes place on 2nd November, which is one day after All Saints’ Day on 1st November and two days after Halloween (traditionally known as All Hallows’ Eve) on 31st October. All three are part of the Christian holiday of Allhallowtide, also known as the Hallowmas season.
