Are you familiar with the traditional Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos? It is commemorated every November 1st and 2nd in honor of the deceased. Latin America and areas with a Latino population celebrate these two days with much fanfare.
The celebration is akin to the Western Christianity holidays, All Saints Day and All Souls Day. Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is intended to be a joyful event not one of sadness and grief. To make the most of these two days, families and friends utilize day of the dead decorations on their faces, homes, and the graves of their loved ones. It’s quite a sight to behold.
