02 Día de los Muertos
Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is a holiday celebrated throughout all of Mexico. Unlike other popular celebrations, this multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to remember and pray for friends and family members who have died. This gathering is to help support their spiritual journey. Families will go to cemeteries to be with the souls of the departed and build private altars containing photos, memorabilia and favorite food and beverages of the their lost loved ones. Planning for this holiday will sometimes be made throughout the entire year, including what goods to be offered to the dead. Traditionally toys are brought for the children’s altars, and tequila is brought for the altars of the adults. Calaveras de azucar (small skulls made of sugar) are also popular during this three- day long event. Day of the Dead is not recognized as an official public holiday.
