For the Roman Catholic religion, the day of November 2nd was not officially approved until the 14th century. Today, throughout the Catholic religion, November 2nd stands as the day to pray for the deceased, the day after All Saints Day of November 1st. Other religions have kept their practices separate from Western Christianity.

The religion is based on the belief that salvation comes from reading scripture and having faith while alive on Earth. The Lutheran religion does not believe in any specific intermediary place after death. Lutherans believe that through faith, grace and scripture, one will have a way to eternal life in heaven. The belief is that after death, the soul remains asleep until the final judgment day. At death, they slept peacefully until the final resurrection of the dead when they entered heaven. There is a question regarding purgatory and if a place such as this exists in the afterlife.
Depending on personal religious beliefs, the answer is yes there is such a place or no, purgatory does not exist. The belief is that through prayers, the departed souls in purgatory eventually will have eternal life in Heaven. Long before sunrise, people stream into the cemeteries laden with candles, flowers and food that is often shaped and decorated to resemble the symbols of death. Children eat tiny chocolate hearse, sugar funeral wreaths, and candy skulls and coffins.
But the atmosphere is festive.
