  3. I do believe All Saints' Day is Nov01, which is why Martin Luther chose All Hallows Eve Oct31 to nail his 95 Theses on the door of Wittenberg Cathedral, as he knew people would be at church the following day and would read them. All Hallows Eve has morphed into Hallowe'en.

    Yes, Silvia will be missing her brother. The LORD be with you, Queen Silvia.

    2. "All Saints Day in Sweden is a national holiday that has both religious and traditional significance. While the date of this holiday is 1 November on the church calendar, Sweden observes All Saints Day on the First Saturday in November."

    3. All Saints’ Day in Sweden was moved to the first Sunday in November and in 1953 to the Saturday between 31 October and 6 November.
