El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) Although it is marked throughout Latin America, Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican celebration, 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 skulls), and parades.
