This is a Christian celebration

In Christianity, All Souls' Day commemorates the faithful departed, in particular (but not exclusively) one's relatives. In Western Christianity the annual celebration is now held on 2 November and is associated with the three days of Allhallowtide, including All Saints' Day (1 November) and its vigil, Halloween (31 October). On this day in particular, Catholics pray for the dead.

Beliefs and practices associated with All Souls' Day vary widely among Christian churches and denominations.
