The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Dia de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and in other cultures around the world. On this holiday, families and friends gather to pray for and remember deceased friends and family members. It is especially celebrated in Mexico, where the day is a public holiday. The celebrations take place on October 31st, November 1st and 2nd and are related to the Hallowtide Triduum: All Hallows 'Eve, Hallowmas and All Souls' Day.

The traditions associated with the holiday include building private altars, so-called ofrendas, honoring the deceased with sugar skulls, marigolds and the favorite foods and drinks of the deceased, and visiting graves with these gifts. They also leave belongings of the deceased.


Scientists trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous customs dating back hundreds of years, as well as an Aztec festival in honor of the goddess Mictecacihuatl. The holiday has spread all over the world. In Brazil, the Dia de Finados is a public holiday that many Brazilians celebrate by visiting cemeteries and churches. There are festivals and parades in Spain, and at the end of the day, people gather in cemeteries and pray for their loved ones who have passed away. Similar festivals are held in other European countries, and similar festivals are celebrated in many Asian and African cultures.
