Dia De los Muertos



Happy Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead.  In Christian churches, it's often called Rememberence day and celebrated on the first sunday of November.  Where I come from, South Texas, where there is a large percentage of Mexican people, it's a holiday where people celebrate the memory of those who have passed.  They make altars with photos and favorite items of their loved ones.  It's a time of celebrating and honoring those who are gone.  It's been happening for thousands of years.

Dia De Los Muertos goes from Oct 31 to Nov 2nd
