Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Latin American holiday traditionally celebrated on November 1st and 2nd by millions of people who are of Mexican heritage, as well as those who are from other parts of Central and South America.

The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pay respects and to remember friends and family members who have died. The celebration is not solely focused on the dead, as it is also common to give gifts to friends, such as candy sugar skulls.
