All Saints' Day

Today in Poland and other Christian countries we celebrate All Saints' Day, during the day according to the tradition we offer flowers and light candles on the graves of deceased relatives. That day is a time to commemorate the dead, reflection on death and sense of human life and its passing.
We also reminisce about great Polish citizens like war heros, artists and thinkers who passed away but the memory of they heritage is still alive in our minds.
Do you have such a day in your country? If so, how do you celebrate it?
