Five ways to celebrate All Saints Day at home
By Tim Brown , Living Lutheran, October 27, 2020
Pictures and candles
Purchase small votive candles and, while you’re attending worship (by whatever means are available), light the candles to commemorate those who have gone before.
Food and familiar smells
Use All Saints Day to make a favorite meal once cooked by someone whom you love but who is no longer with you.
Stories and songs
All Saints is the perfect day to listen intentionally to that music or pass along that family lore to children, partners or anyone willing to hold the space and the day with you to remember loved ones.
Take the day to do a little research on a saint.
Postcard from the past
One of the honest realizations about All Saints Day is that one day we will all be remembered by someone on this holy day. Take this day to write a postcard to a younger relative, noting some of the beauty you see in the world, giving a nod to your favorite music and perhaps even telling a simple memory or two that have shaped your life.
