Mexico: Día de Los Muertos
Looking to get a taste of “Day of the Dead during your epic Halloween party? Experience the beautifully crafted and maintained Día de Los Muertos! Mexico and Spain are famous for Día de Los Muertos, or “Day of the Dead,” which is celebrated annually on November 1 and 2. Locals dress up like their ancestors and build private altars called “ofrendas”, which they use to present gifts – from sugar skulls to tequila – to the dead.
The celebration is designed to honor the dead who, it is believed, return to their earthly homes on Halloween. Many families construct an altar to the dead in their homes to honor deceased relatives and decorate it with candy, flowers, photographs, samples of the deceased’s favorite foods and drinks, and fresh water. Often, a wash basin and towel are left out so that the spirit can wash before indulging in the feast.
