Day of the Dead
Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is one of the most important holidays in Mexico, other Latin countries, and parts of the American Southwest. It takes place every November 1 and 2 and it is believed that during this joyful two-day celebration the passageway between the physical world and the spirit world is open and lost loved ones can come back. Traditions vary by region, but in Mexico the living encourage the dead to visit by creating ofrendas (offerings), altars decorated with marigolds, sugar skulls, photographs, and the favorite food and drinks of the loved ones being honored. The dead can eat, drink, sing, dance, and rejoice with their living family and friends before they return to the spirit world for another year.
