Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is commemorated in Mexico and by people with Mexican heritage every year on November 2. Unlike Halloween, this is no occasion to be scared, but happy. People’s lost loved ones come back from the dead one night a year to spend time with their families, which prepare delicious meals, sweets and drinks to greet their loved ones.
Arranging a gaudy altar with flowers, candles, pictures and objects of the diseased is customary, both at people’s homes and in cemeteries. Indigenous traditions inspired this festive celebration but were also greatly influenced by European customs, blurring the line between the old and new ways, between life and death.
