Altars

From pre-Columbian times, the Day of the Dead has been celebrated throughout Mexico and Latin American countries. Today it is celebrated throughout the Americas on November 1 and 2, a time in which the living lovingly pay tribute and remember their departed friends and family members. Remembrances include family visits to the local cemetery, processions through town squares and inventive homemade altars honoring departed family members with photos, “Pan de Muerto” sweet bread and flowers.

For more information on traditional Day of the Dead altars visit: Celebrate Day of the Dead.
