It’s time to celebrate Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead! Get ready for painted skulls, marigolds, lots of delicious food and drink, and some quality family time to remember lost loved ones!
What is Día de los Muertos?
Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, in English, is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the one day every year when the barrier between the spirit world and the physical world dissolves, and lost loved ones can visit the living.
On el día de los muertos, families celebrate loved ones who have passed away with altars full of marigolds, the deceased’s favorite foods, drinks and photos! They also use beautifully decorated Calaveras, or decorated skulls, usually made of sugar to adorn their altars and spaces!
Día de los Muertos is by no means a sad holiday, however. It’s a day of celebration of life and the lives lived by passed loved ones.
