Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
All Souls Day is very popular with countries of Hispanic tradition. In Mexico they celebrate Dia De los Muertos (Day of the Dead). On this day they fondly remember their departed family members so they can feel their presence once again. They celebrate with a full day of activities both in solemn and fun ways.
Traditional foods are eaten, altars are decorated in homes with pictures of family members, and children receive candy (including sugar skulls). Families gather in the cemetery on November 2nd to sing, talk, tidy graves, have picnics, and play games. As night falls, candles are lit and families remain in the graveyard until dawn.
