DAY OF THE DEAD : November 2

During the Mexican holiday of the Day of the Dead, families welcome the spirits of their departed loved ones back for a brief reunion that includes food, drink, and celebration.

Although the custom has always been a part of Mexican culture, it has recently gained popularity as a major travel destination as

tourists go to towns and cities all across the nation to see the vibrant displays of ofrendas, altars that serve as gateways for the dead to return to the living world.

When people dress up as La Calavera Catrina on the Day of the Dead, 

Halloween is a spooky, naughty night, while Day of the Dead celebrations take place over two days, November 1 and 2, 

which correspond to All Saints Day and All Souls Day in Christianity, and are a riot of colour and joy.
