The Day of the dead
The day of the dead is a traditional Mexican holiday that commemorates and honors the death of a love family member and friends.Despite its spooky name, the Day of the dead is a festive celebration of devotion and remembrance,that lasts for two days in early November every year.
As the holiday approaches ,families prepare altars in their homes by filling them with flowers ,candles,and photos of lost love ones . symbolic gifts, such as breads or sugar skeletons are presented by friends and neighbors and added to the shrines..On November 1 st, households throughout Mexico carry the contents of their altars to their local cemeteries where they spend the night at the grave sites of their lost relatives ,telling stories and talking to the spirits of the dead. In the morning .the mourners return home in high spirits to celebrate with music and lavish feasts. as dusk sets in doors and window are pushed open so that any remaining spirits may wander in and out and join the revelry.
