Dia de los muertos or day of the dead is a holiday originally celebrated in Mexico honoring those that have passed on. It is a rich, vibrant, beautiful celebration with a long history and amazing traditions.
Today it is not only recognized in Mexico but many celebrations for it happen in the USA and can sometimes get blurred with our version of honoring the dead, Halloween. If you are still trying to decide on a Halloween costume this might be just the inspiration you need.
