Some communities celebrate with a “special” Mass, inviting people who have lost loved ones, and having a reception or meal afterward.
It’s also a good time to have a funeral choir, and to employ other traditions, like inscribing names in a book of the deceased.

Look out: next year, it falls on a Sunday. How will that affect your parish traditions?
