In November, on the 1st of the month, many Catholic churches in the U.S. celebrate All Saint’ Day; a day to honor all the Saints. It is widely celebrated in many areas within the U.S, especially where the Roman Catholic’s have large populations. The day can also be referred to as All Hallows’ day as the day is closely linked with Halloween on October 31. November 11 is Veterans Day, and is a federal holiday to honor all those who have served in the United States Military Services. The day marks the anniversary of signing the armistice, which concluded WWI between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. This day is usually celebrated by parades and church services along with a period of silence.
