…in Mexico celebrating Dia de los Muertos.
Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico with families going to cemeteries to clean and decorate graves and honour the lives of the deceased. Altars dedicated to the dead called offredas are prepared in homes and decorated with photographs, flowers and sugar skulls.
The celebrations last from October 31st until 2nd November to coincide with the Christian feast days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day.
