Guest Blog: Understanding the Mexican Holiday Dia De Los Muertos

Articles Nov 1, 2021

Dia De Los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated on November 1 and November 2. The holiday is a celebration of the dead, through which families and friends honor and remember loved ones who have passed away. It is a day where the border between the spirit world and the world of the living opens, and the souls of the deceased can reunite with their family members and friends. Rather than the holiday being one of mourning, it is a joyous day to celebrate the people who have died with festivities and remembrance. In this way, death is seen in a positive light and as a natural part of life.
