Day of the Dead November 1st and 2nd.

October 31, 2011

Day of the Dead is celebrated in the Mexican culture on November 1st and 2nd. “This holiday is a time to remember people who have died. It “is a time for families to visit cemeteries. They wash and decorate their relatives’ gravestones. Marigold flowers are laid out to lead the spirits home. Many families stay in the cemeteries all day and night. They sing, eat, and pray to honor the lives of their loved ones.”
