Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos is a day of celebration and remembrance of loved ones who have passed. Because the Day of the Dead is celebrated at roughly the same time of year as Halloween and the two share some common roots, Day of the Dead is sometimes referred to as the “Mexican Halloween.” However, the focus of the two holidays is quite different. With its emphasis on remembering and honoring the dead, Day of the Dead is in some ways more similar to the American observation of Memorial Day. As celebrated today, Day of the Dead is essentially a family time, a time of reunion for both the living and the dead.
