Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is a Mexican holiday celebrated on the first and second day of November. It's a holiday meant to bring families and friends together to help support the deceased on their spiritual journey by praying and remembering loved ones who have passed away. It is believed the gates of heaven open on October 31st at midnight to allow the spirits of the deceased to reunite with their families. All Saints Day, November 1st, is a day to pay tribute to the children and infants that have passed away while All Souls Day, November 2nd, honors the adults who are no longer with us. Large alters called ofrendas are built to honor the dead, and are adorned with gifts and treats, including some traditional items like pan de muerto (Day of the Dead bread), sugar skulls, folk art skeletons, and even alcoholic drinks like mezcal. This beautiful tradition has created some absolutely amazing decor, and since it shares the same day as Halloween, you could use these decor items interchangeably with Halloween decor for a fun, multicultural display!
