Nearly 60 percent of the population of Chad follows Islam, while around 40 percent follow some form of Christianity. Unlike Easter and Christmas, All Saints’ Day is observed mostly by Catholics, who make up 20 percent of the population, instead of by all Christians. There are a few Protestants too, however, who observe it.
All Saints’ Day is a day set aside to honour all saints who lack their own special holy day. There are so many people who‘ve been sainted in Roman Catholicism that it would be impractical to have an observance for each and every one of them. For all believers, even if not “saints”, All Souls Day on 2 November is the designated day of remembrance.
