All Saint's Day is an important holiday celebrated in honour of known and unknown saints on November 1st. While the Vėlinės (All Soul's Day) celebration to commemorate the deceased is held to be on November 2nd, in Lithuania the two are often celebrated together on November 1st with deceased relatives' graves being visited.
