Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead
Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is on November 2nd, however many people celebrate the holiday for multiple days. Dia de los Muertos is a special celebration reserved for honoring the life and death of those who have passed away. Loved ones welcome the souls of their deceased relatives and set up ofrendas, or offerings, so that they are welcomed with their favorite foods, and marigolds, so that they find their way back home.
