Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead)

The Day of the Dead, known in Spanish as Dia de Los Muertos, is a two-day holiday honoring the spirits of the deceased. The celebration coincides with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day on November 1 and All Souls’ Day on November 2.

Traditionally, this holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends in honor of those who have passed. Living relatives visit graves and build private altars that resemble elaborate shrines and can be erected in the home or at the gravesites themselves.
