Día de los Muertos is perhaps one of the most commonly known and widely celebrated holidays across Latin America, with a special significance amongst Mexican communities in particular. This holiday commemorates not only our loved ones who have passed on, but also emphasizes death as an integral, ever-present part of life. Rather than it being a day of mourning and sadness, however, it is a time of celebration! Not only does it provide the opportunity to teach children about their ancestors and cultural heritage, but it also serves as a reminder that we must accept our own mortality…and that we can have fun while doing so!
