Monaco is a predominantly Roman Catholic micro-state. The holiday is celebrated on 1 November but may be observed on 2 November if it would otherwise fall on a Sunday. This ensures a day off work and school for the general population.
All Saints’ Day has several alternate names, including Feast of All Saints, Solemnity of All Saints, Hallowmas, and All Hallows‘ Day. The latter expression gives rise to the day before, 31 October, being dubbed All Hallow‘s Eve, from which comes the word “Halloween”.
On both All Saints’ Day and the day after, which is All Souls Day, most people maintain the graves of their loved ones, decorate them with flowers, attend cemetery services, and attend church services in a local church or cathedral. In the graveyard services, priests say vesper prayers and bless tombs as well as giving a short sermon, perhaps, at the cemetery‘s chapel house.
