An age old festival, particularly celebrated in Mexico, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrates and honors loved ones that have died. Traditionally taking place on November 1 (All Saints Day) and November 2 (All Soul's Day), the celebrations are lively and festive. The rituals consist of friends and family gathering to build private alters where they prey, adorn with sugar skulls, marigolds, mementos, food and beverages.
