Day of the Dead Celebration
“Día de los muertos” is a Mexican holiday celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November, and everyone can celebrate it. During these days, people make ofrendas (altars) for loved ones who have passed away.
Ofrendas usually have marigold flowers, candles, photos, and even the deceased’s favorite foods.
Although it sounds sad, the Day of the Dead is really an emotional, fun, and colorful holiday where families gather to share stories about their loved ones and remember them fondly!
