Day of the Dead Traditions

Mexican holidays and traditions are deeply rooted in the culture and history of the nation, and even in the destinations that are the most popular among foreigners, you’ll still find locals putting on grand Day of the Dead celebrations.

One of the most captivating Day of the Dead facts is embedded in the creation of colorful altars adorned with candles, marigolds, sugar skulls, and the favorite foods of the deceased, which can be seen all over town, especially in cemeteries and people’s homes. The altars are believed to be the passageway for the deceased to come back to earth in order to celebrate with their friends and family.
