El Dia de Los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is a two day celebration that generally takes place in Mexico. Mexicans from all over the world come together with family members and close friends to honor and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed away.
The Mexican holiday takes place on the 1st and 2nd day of November in compliance with the Catholic holy days; All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. Typical celebrations include making the favorite drinks, foods, and desserts of the deceased and placing them all on a home alter. These alters also include yellow marigolds, sugar skulls, and a photo of the deceased.
El Dia de Los Muertos is supposed to be a celebration not a day of mourning. Processions are lead to cemeteries and there music is played and children put on performances to honor the dead.
