Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

altDate : 2 November
A festival that sure sounds spooky but forms an important part of the spiritual beliefs of every Mexican is the Dia de los Muertos, the equivalent of Halloween in Mexico. Entrances to homes are adorned with skeletons and small bones, believed to attract (and invite) relatives who have passed away, so that they may come into the family home to spend a few hours with their loved ones.
The day starts with visits to graveyard, where graves are tidied up and ornamented with fresh flowers, and special prayers are said for the deceased. Marigolds and favorite food and drinks of the deceased are also laid by the grave.
Processions are also taken out in the citys streets in remembrance of the dead, with props, flowers, and costumes.
