What is Day of the Dead?

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars, honoring the deceased using calaveras (skulls), marigolds, the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts. Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves.

While it is tremendously difficult to lose a loved one, it is also comforting to share our memories with those who may never have known them. Dia de los Muertos provides a moment each year to appreciate both life and death with food, love, and fun.
