What is the day after Halloween called?
Boxer Day
All Saints Day
Arbor Day

Answer: The day after Halloween is called All Saints Day. Celebrated on Nov. 1 each year, it is a Christian day of solemnity that is also referred to as Solemnity of All Saints, or All Hallow. In Western Christian religions, 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. The Roman Catholic religion views All Saints Day as a Holy Day of Obligation, which means that attendance at mass is required.
