Día de Muertos or “Day of the Dead” is a holiday celebrated predominately in Mexico and by people of Mexican heritage around the world. It takes place on 1st–2nd November, although it can stretch as far back as 31st October or as late as 6th November if you live in Yucatan.

The holiday commemorates the dead in a joyous way where people pay their respects in remembrance of the loved ones they have lost. No doubt you will have seen the famous traditions of Día de Muertos such as calaveras (edible or decorative skulls made from sugar or clay), cempazúchitl (a marigold flower native to Mexico), and home altars known as ofrendas.

I thought it’d be cool to post some interesting links on Día de Muertos and its various traditions so here they are:
