Día De Los Muertos/ Day Of The Dead

Día De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a celebration that is observed from November 1st to the 2nd and is widely observed in Mexico and throughout Latin America and the United States with people of Mexican and Latin American Heritage. According to the tradition, is believed that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31st and the spirit of a loved one can rejoin their families for 24 hours. Families honor and celebrate the lives of their loved ones who have passed away. This event is a reminder that death is a natural part of life and, while the grief of losing a family member and friends can be devastating, coming together to remember them can bring a great sense of comfort and healing. The key component for this celebration is making an altar, or ofrenda (offering), that's meant to commemorate their loved one's earthly legacies. The most common decorations for altars are Orange Marigolds flowers, fruits, food, alcohol, and candles.
