Chile is a land full of festivals, many of which are deeply rooted in Roman Catholicism but with traditions of Native Americans often mixed in. One of those festivals is All Saints’ Day on 1 November.

All Saints’ Day is meant to honour all of the deceased believer’s who’ve already entered Paradise. The first All Saints’ Day ever is thought to have been in A.D. 609 at the behest of Pope Boniface IV, who received the pagan pantheon of gods from the Roman Emperor that year and essentially replaced its contents with Mary and the saints.

People in Chile will hold various colourful processions in city streets for All Saints’ Day. They also attend All Saints’ Day Mass and visit and decorate the graves of their ancestors and relatives.
