An Introduction to the Day of the Dead!

The Day of the Dead! A vibrant and colorful Mexican celebration that’s all about honoring and remembering loved ones who have passed away.

Picture this: colorful sugar skulls, marigolds everywhere, and a lively fiesta-like atmosphere. 

The Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos in Spanish, takes place on November 1st and 2nd, coinciding with the Catholic holidays All Saints Day and All Souls’ Day.

The Day of the Dead is a joyous occasion for families to come together. They set up elaborate altars called ofrendas,  adorned with photos, favorite foods, and belongings of the departed. 

You’ll find people gathering in cemeteries to clean and decorate graves, sharing anecdotes and stories about those they’ve lost. And don’t forget the iconic sugar skulls - they’re not just cute decorations. They’re often inscribed with the names of the living and dead symbolizing the cycle of life and death.

The Day of the Dead is a blend of indigenous Mexican tradition and Catholic influences, and a time to remember those who’ve departed earth with smiles, laughter and love.
