A Little Bit About Dia de los Muertos

Falling on November 1st and 2nd each year, Dia de los Muertos coincides with the Western All Saints Day (and ​Halloween). In Mexico, these days are set aside for the remembrance of those who have passed on and traditionally involves families spending the day at the graves of their loved ones. They often bring offerings of items that their loved ones especially liked such as cigarettes, tequila, a favorite food and more. The marigold is the flower most associated with this celebration of life.
