All Saints’ Day & All Souls’ Day

So in tearing off the pages of my desk calendar and depositing them in the paper recycling bin at work, I noticed yesterday was All Saints Day and today is All Souls Day. Of course I Googled it and here is the combined entry:
All Saints’ Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. It should not be confused with All Souls’ Day, which is observed on November 2, and is dedicated to those who have died and not yet reached heaven.
It was interesting reading as I am not overly religious but not against the ideas or ideals in religious beliefs or church ceremonies. I choose not to follow a particular faith but prefer to keep my mind open to all the ideas expressed and absorb those which make the most sense and appeal to me. That may seem weird to other people but it’s a choice, the same as everyone should have. I digress as this is not a soapbox moment, I just found the calendar entries intriguing enough to look them up and see what was referenced.
Hope your Monday is going better than my scenes from the movie Office Space that have been lived out in a conference room today. So, what would you say you do here?

Peace and may the month of November only be a time barrier until you reach December my friends.
