DIA DE LOS MUERTOS


Day of the Dead Dia de los Muertos, is a holiday that is celebrated annually on November 1st and 2nd to honour and remember those that have died. The holiday resembles All Saints Day and All Souls Day, which are celebrated after Halloween on the Christian calendar.

First developed in Mexico, the Day of the Dead is most notably celebrated in Latin American regions, although it is becoming increasingly popular throughout the United States, too!

When the Aztecs first began observing this occasion over 3,000 years ago, their ultimate goal was to honour and celebrate the deceased as their spirits returned, not necessarily to mourn those who are no longer with us. While it is definitely still a time of reflection and remembrance, the main focus is to celebrate the lives that our loved ones lived.
