Day of the Dead
Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a festival honoring one’s deceased relatives that has its roots with indigenous peoples of central and southern Mexico and today is a national Mexican holiday. It is also celebrated by many living in the states. Traditions include decorating and leaving offerings at grave sites, or at alters in the home, with marigold blossoms, sugar skulls, and favorite foods. It is a happy and lively celebration in honor of the departed.
