All Saints' Day

Most people associate All Saints' Day with the Western Churches, but somehow this also appears on Syrian calendars I've seen, so I decided to add this to the calendar.

Hmm, strange, Mor.  On the Eastern Orthodox calendar at least, the first Sunday after Pentecost is "The Sunday of ALL SAINTS."  Perhaps the Syriac calendar is just acknowledging what the Western Church observes on Nov. 1?  Don't forget that what has become the mostly pagan festival of Hallowe'en (All Hallows' Eve) is observed tonight on the Western calendar as well.

We have a feast of All Saints', too, but I think it is celebrated a few Sundays before the beginning of Lent.  I suppose your theory could be right, but it's not like they also include "Corpus Christi" or any holidays like that.  So why All Saints'?  At any rate, I still have a lot more to add to the calendar page, but I figured I'd test it out with this.
