All Saints Day

 

All Saints Day in Lithuania is a solemn holiday. November 1 is set aside as a day to recognize the souls of the dead as well as remembering the Saints of the Catholic Church. All Saints Day  many Lithuanians visit churches and cemeteries to light candles and lay floral wreaths in remembrance of the dead. On this day, it is said that the souls of loved ones return to Earth to ask the living to pray for them and the candles are lit to show them the way. It is traditionally quite a sombre day and many Lithuanians get together with friends, families and loved ones for a big meal.
