Day of the Dead

"Día de los muertos <<DEE ah deh lohs MWEHR tohs>> is a Mexican holiday that honors the dead. Many Mexican American communities also celebrate it. Día de los muertos is a Spanish phrase meaning day of the dead. On this day, families gather in churches, at cemeteries, and in homes. They pray for and remember loved ones who have died. The celebration is usually on November 2, the Roman Catholic religious festival of All Souls' Day. Some people celebrate over several days, including All Saints' Day on November 1.
