All Souls' is on 2 Nov, it has never (AFAIK) been on 31 Oct. 

Thank you!   Not sure how I made it the day before All Saints rather than after.

Right. 31 Oct is Hallowe'en (All Hallows Even = the eve of All Saints/Nov 1). Although many local traditions don't mark much difference between All Saints and All Souls, so it's easy to confuse. :)

A lot of people are doing that lately.  I blame it on the Mexicans.  ;)
