Honoring Loved Ones Together

Día de Muertos/Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico and parts of the United States on or around November 2nd. On this holiday, people remember and honor their deceased loved ones.

It is a festive and colorful holiday celebrating the lives of those who have passed on. People visit cemeteries to decorate the graves and to be in the presence of their deceased friends and family members. They also create Ofrendas in their homes in honor of those who have passed.

The day is a unique aspect of Mexican culture passed down through generations, beginning well before the arrival of Europeans.  UNESCO named the celebration as part of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity in 2008.
