About Día de los Muertos:
Día de los Muertos is a traditional Mexican and Latin American holiday when family and friends gather to remember loved ones that have passed. Families build altars to the dead, and honor them with food, drink, flowers, candles, personal momentos, and other offerings, as a celebration of life and death.
