The entire month of November is dedicated to faithfully departed souls. The first 8 days of November in particular there is an octave of praying for souls.  All Saints’ Day is specifically for those in heaven (canonized and not), and All Souls’ Day is for the souls in Purgatory. In the Catholic faith, we pray for the dead and the repose of their souls. The following are Catholics traditions on All Saints’ Day:

✔️ Going to Mass (as this is a Holy Day of Obligation, meaning attending Mass is required) 

✔️ Praying for the dead

✔️ Remembering the dead specifically on November 1 and 2

✔️ Praying before photographs of deceased loved ones

✔️ Lighting candles for the dead

✔️ Having home altars

✔️ Offering flowers on a home altar

✔️ Visiting the graves of loved ones and leaving f lowers
