Día de los Muertos

In Latin cultures, 1 November is traditionally the Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos. It's a day to celebrate with family and friends and remember loved ones who have passed. This day also coincides with All Saints Day in the Catholic tradition, followed by All Souls' Day (2 November). In many communities, this is a day to visit graves and leave flowers.
