Dia de Los Muertos, is a day to celebrate, remember, and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. On this day in Mexico, the streets near the cemeteries are filled with decorations of Papel Picado, flowers, candy Calaveras (skeletons and sugar skulls), and parades.
It is believed that the spirits of the dead visit their families on October 31 and leave on November 2.
In order to celebrate, the families make altars and place offerings of food such as Pan de Muertos baked in shapes of skulls and figures, candles, incense, yellow marigolds and most importantly a photo of the departed soul is placed on the altar.
Hispanic cultures react to death with mourning along with happiness and joy. They look at death with the same fear as any other culture, but there is a difference; they reflect their fear by mocking and living alongside death.
Living alongside death means that Hispanic culture has learned to accept it within their lives as death is apparent in everyday life.
