SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT THE DAY OF THE DEAD (Dia De Los Muertos)

Celebrated in Mexico, Dia De Los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead as translated from Spanish, is actually two (three in some parts) days in celebration of family members who have died.  It is meant to keep the family together, and remember the family bond, even after death.

The first day (November 1st) is to honor children that have passed away by getting together with family members at the cemetery and decorating very cheerfully.

The second day (Nov. 2nd) is to honor the parted adults by placing their favorite foods drinks and favorite things on their gravestones.

This is not traditionally celebrated my most Americans and is not a day of exchanging gifts.  It is a day to remember your departed loved ones and to give the deceased gifts.

I will not leave any gift ideas here, except if you are not of Mexican heritage, to remember your own departed loved ones in whatever way you see fit.  You may honor the dead by going to the cemetery, having a moment of silence in their honor, or making a donation to a charity in their name.  You may also collaterally celebrate the holiday by reading a book on the Mexican culture, eating Mexican food or traveling to the beautiful country.
