Oct 2022
Latinos in the United States celebrate the lives of the ones they loved, during the Day of the Dead with flowers, food, candles and music on November 1st and 2nd.

The Day of the Dead was emanated from Mexico and has spread to Latin America such as Guatemala, Honduras, Peru and other countries. This celebration includes placing an altar at home or grave of the departed.

The altar includes photographs, significant belongings and favourite beverages or food. As well as Cempasúchil blossoms are placed, which supposed to attract the souls of the dead.

 

Millions of Latin american families in the United States still preserve these traditions. Usually with caravas or parades in cities with wide Latino congregations.
