Day of the Dead Holiday

Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, in Spanish, is a celebration that happens in Mexico and many other places, to remember family members who have left us, and for them to come back to visit us during a special day. In other cultures is it known by other names like Souls Day or seen as Mexico’s version of All Saints Day. Rather than being sad, it is a grand celebration of life.

In fact it’s more like a great big family reunion!

Personally, I believe that this Mexican holiday is a really beautiful tradition. For Day of the Dead celebrations, some families hang out in nature (naturaleza) and read the bible (biblia), but my family (familia) likes to get together, eat favorite foods and treats like sugar skulls, and children (niños and niñas) watch their favorite cartoons (dibujos animados) while the elders make crafts (artesanias).

So many colorful ways to decorate sugar skulls!

As a part of Mexican traditions, families get together during Dia de muertos to eat traditional foods like pan de muertos, tamales, and drink champurrado.

Mmm you’ll love this traditional treat!

Some people like to dress up as La Calavera Catrina, too! The original la Catrina wasn’t part of the Day of the Dead, but her iconic art style is recognized by everyone.
