Two 'Day of the Dead' dancersDay of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico on November 1st (All Saint's Day) and 2nd (All Souls Day). It's a time to remember deceased loved ones and honor them. Day of the Dead is a festive occasion, a time to celebrate, much like a family reunion. Making a Day of the Dead altar can be a way for you to honor the life of someone who was important to you, or remember your ancestors. There are no hard and fast rules about how the altar should be made. Be creative and make something that looks attractive and is meaningful to you. Here's How to Make Your Own Day of the Dead Alter.
