Day of the Dead Flowers and History

October 17, 2018

Day of the Dead Girl with MakeupWhat Is Day of the Dead?

Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos), is a holiday that is celebrated annually on November 1st and 2nd to honor and remember those that have passed on. The holiday resembles All Saints Day and All Souls Day, which are celebrated after Halloween on the Christian calendar.

First developed in Mexico, the Day of the Dead is most notably celebrated in Latin American regions, although it is becoming increasingly popular throughout the United States, too!

While it is definitely still a time of reflection and remembrance, the main focus is to celebrate the lives that our loved ones lived.
