Wish everyone a joyous All Saints’ Day and Día de Todos los Santos

About All Saints’ Day in the United States:

     All Saints’ Day, which is celebrated globally, is closely tied with All Souls’ Day, which was first instituted at the monastery in Cluny, France in 993 CE* and quickly spread among Christians.

[and. . .]

     Many Latin American communities in the United States hold celebrations around November 1 and 2, linking with All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day (November 2). These celebrations are part of the Day of the Dead, also known as Día de los Muertos.

Celebrate Día de los Muertos this Saturday in Downtown Lake Worth. Gather at City Hall (7 North Dixie Hwy) and celebration begins at 4:30. For more details use this link.
