By: Dar Bellissimo
Sunday, November 1, 2020

In parts of Ireland and other Irish communities, Cemetery Sunday, or Blessing of the Graves, is a Roman Catholic observance honoring deceased loved ones. In some places it involves a service and blessing and in others, time for cleaning and decorating graves. Like Día de los Muertos, All Saints Day and All Souls Day, this holiday recognizes the importance of remembering those who have died.
