What is the Day of the Dead?

El Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), a Mexican tradition, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. On this day in Mexico, the streets near the cemeteries are filled with decorations of papel picado (decoratively cut paper), papel flores (paper flowers), candy calaveras (skeletons & skulls), and parades. Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico between October 31st and November 2nd.
