Today Folia celebrates the Feast of All Saints (or All Saints' Day) with an illumination from the Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry, showing all Saints in Paradise.
The origins of this celebration go back in time up to the 4th century, definitely long before All Souls' Day – celebrated tomorrow (Nov. 2nd) and dating back “just” to the 10th century.
