Día de los Muertos (also known as Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday
Día de los Muertos (also known as Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday. The celebration occurs annually on October 31, November 1, and November 2, and is held to honor those who have died. Specifically, the term Día de los Muertos traditionally refers to November 2, when deceased adults are commemorated. Following Spanish colonization, the Day of the Dead was gradually influenced by another holiday honoring those who have died: Allhallowtide. Inspired by Pagan harvest festivities, this three-day fete comprises All Hallow’s Eve, or Halloween, on October 31, All Saints’ Day on November 1, and All Souls’ Day on November 2.
The dead even get their own bread – pan de muerto (bread of the dead). It’s a sweet bread that is often made with bone-shaped pieces.
That’s why this day is often referred to as Día de los Inocentes (Day of the Innocents) or Día de los Angelitos (Day of the Little Angels). The next day, the spirits of adults will join the festivities. Learn more about the Day of the Dead in this great video. Image by Thacher Gallery at the University of San Francisco from flickr.
