Dia de los Muertos

The holiday called Day of the Dead is to mourn the dead, not really. The first night of the day of the dead is to spend time with the adult loved ones the second night is to spend time with the little ones that have pasted on. Sometimes people make alters, they usally have: Marigolds (flowers to help the loved ones find their way back), water (for thirst), food (hunger from the long trip) and fire for warpmth. This holiday is not a sad holiday it is a happy, colorful and a fun holiday.
