La Toussaint is a Catholic holiday celebrated on November 1 during which the Catholic Church honors all Saints, known and unknown.
The liturgical celebration begins at vespers the evening of October 31 and ends at the end of November 1. It precedes by one day the Commemoration of the faithful deceased, whose solemnity has been officially set for November 2.
In countries with a Catholic tradition, particularly in France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Great Britain, desserts are made during All Saints 'Day in honor of all the saints and the day after All Saints' Day in honor of deceased.
