Día De Los Muertos is a Mexican festival celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November. Known as The Day of The Dead in English, this festival involves spending time with family, remembering loved ones who have passed away and dressing up in fabulous Day of The Dead Halloween costumes.

The History Of Día De Los Muertos

This historic festival is thought to have been celebrated over 3000 years ago. Unlike Halloween, this Meso-American festival is a joyful occasion. Whilst there are many skeletons walking around and the theme of death is very prominent in this holiday, this is not a time for sadness. In Día De Los Muertos, the skeleton, or as it is known in Mexico a ‘calaca’ is a joyful character. They are used to represent those who have passed away returning to life and doing things that they enjoyed.

The living celebrate this tradition by decorating the graves of their loved ones and presenting them with gifts. Often they lay flowers on their graves, most commonly the marigold flower, which is so popular at this time of the year; many refer to them as ‘the flower of the dead’.

Another popular tradition during this festival is to create an altar at home for those who have passed away. These usually include pictures of beloved deceased relatives, things that represented their life, offerings of food and drink and of course, marigold flowers. Many schools also build altars together and government buildings usually have a small altar as this festival is considered a very important part of Mexican heritage.
