Dia de los Muertos Celebrates Life

The Dia de los Muertos holiday begins at the stroke of midnight on October 31.

Calaca Jodi y John webThe Day of the Dead is a time to celebrate life and to poke fun at death.

For two days in early November, families prepare to welcome the souls of their departed loved ones back to the world of the living.

Homes are decorated with special altars and flowers.

Sugar skulls, pan de muerto (Day of the Dead bread) and other favorite recipes are carefully prepared to celebrate the holiday.

Folk art, most featuring skeletons in everyday activities, is also an important part of the celebration.
