All Souls Day is a holiday celebrated in Czech. Its is called All Souls Day. This holiday's true name is Pamatka Zesnulych. On this day it is said that when you die you are not rid of your sins. People think lighting candles, hanging up wreaths, and adding flowers to the graves will get rid of their sins and get them to heaven. All Souls Day is a quiet time not like Halloween. It is celebrated on Saturday, November 2nd. Churches are allowed to have 3 masses. It is on Saturday because that is the day Jesus was in the tomb.
