About The Day of the Dead

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican heritage celebration reuniting the living and dead. Families remember beloved ancestors who’ve died by creating elaborate altars in their honor, cooking and serving their favorite foods, and crafting colorful larger-than-life skeletons.
