Dia de los Muertos is a lively celebration that occurs on November 1st throughout Latin America and Mexico. It is held to honor one’s deceased loved ones and celebrate their lives. People celebrate with food, drink, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life. It is believed that the dead would be insulted by mourning or sadness so this day is not somber at all. It’s a happy day where people remember their loved ones who have passed over. This is something that American culture is seriously lacking in, in my opinion. The holiday recognizes death as a natural part of the human experience. It goes hand-in-hand with birth, childhood, and growing up. On Dia de los Muertos, the dead are a part of the community. They are awakened from their eternal sleep and share in the celebration with their families.

The most familiar symbol of Dia de los Muertos may be the calacas and calaveras (skeletons and skulls). They appear everywhere during the holiday.  They are depicted as happy, dancing, and full of joy.
