El Día de los Muertos (more commonly called “Dia de Muertos” in Mexico, or the “Day of the Dead” in English) might sound like a frightful holiday, but don’t mistake it as the Mexican version of Halloween.
The holiday, originating in Mexico and observed to some extent throughout much of the Spanish-speaking world, is actually a family-oriented holiday. Families visit the graves of loved ones, building private ofrendas (altars) to honor the dead, with offerings of calaveras de azucar (sugar skulls), marigolds, and any favorite foods or drinks of the deceased.
