What is Dia de los Muertos?

Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is very special Mexican holiday where friends and family gather to remember their loved ones who have passed away. Instead of being scary or sad, it is a time of happiness and joy! Family members honor their loved ones by decorating an altar & leaving "ofrendas" such as photographs, flowers, special foods, toys, etc. They also visit the graves of departed friends and family, clean them, and decorate them with fresh flowers. People enjoy picnics and remember their loved ones through stories and songs. Skeletons are often shown in everyday activities which depict a dead person’s profession or interests, and are placed on altars to show the spirit that they have not been forgotten.
