Slide 6 states - The Spanish priests moved the ritual so that it came at the same time as the Christian holiday of Halloween (in Spanish: "Día de Todos Santos,") It is my understanding that Dia de Todos Santos is the feast of All Saints. Halloween is the day prior to the celebration of All Saint's Day. "All Hallows Eve". The Catholic celebration of All Saint's Day is a very important remembrance day as is the feast of All Souls.
