Dia de Los Muertos also known as Day of The Dead in English. This is a celebration that has been going on for several years but it is mostly celebrated in Mexico. This day is celebrated November 2nd every year. They start this the 1st of November till the 2nd of November. That is where it originated and has grown extremely in every culture. It is one amazing holiday that all the Mexicans all over the world enjoy celebrating. They honor the people that have passed away inclusively they honor pets they used to have.

They create an "altar" and in that altar they put all the favorite things that person they are remembering used to love. They cook their favorite dishes, have their favorite candy, have their favorite clothing line they wold always wear wherever it would be a hat or shirt, they inclusively also have a showing of their favorite hobby. All this falls into honoring the loved ones that passed away. These altars have so much decoration it's breath taking. It is an amazing way to see all the hard work they do for their loved ones and the way they honor them even till this day.

This year I was able to experience the day of the dead with family and friends. It was an amazing experience and I loved all the decoration. The Mexican culture is so big and riched when it comes to decoration and it really does leave you speechless. They provided many different colors and it is so pretty. It's also very nice and heart touching seeing people still care about the loved ones that past away.
