    What is that All Souls Day,by the way???
    It's a day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away. We're visiting cemetery and lighting up the candles on the graves. It's a quite sad holiday...

    Oh, God.. Thats very sad... And sorry for asking,but why do you have a day for that? I guess there are a lot of times where you do that.

    This day comes from the ancient Pagan Festival of the Dead, which celebrated the Pagan belief that the souls of the dead would return for a meal with the family.
    But it doesn't have such a big meaning as it had many years ago
