Certain religious orders and countries celebrate their own All Saints Days in the month of November.

Even though November is a month traditionally dedicated to the Holy Souls of Purgatory, it is also a month that features multiple celebrations of different groups of saints.

After the feast of All Saints on November 1, various religious groups wanted to celebrate saints that were specific to them and their spirituality. This led to the institution of multiple All Saints days in November that focus on the holy men and women honored by a particular group.
