Día de Los Muertos is a vibrant Mexican cultural tradition of celebrating deceased loved ones during the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2) and coinciding with Halloween. Age-old customs are evident in colorful displays and altares (altars) set up throughout the city. Family and friends of the deceased create these altares, dedicating them to the spirits of their loved ones. Candles, brilliant flowers and photos of loved ones are arranged among incense and ofrendas (offerings) like toys, drinks and favorite foods.
