How Dia de los Muertos is celebrated in Mexico

Legend has it that during those first two days of November, the veil which disguises the realm of the dead briefly disappears, granting the living a few brief moments of reunification. Altars are made for the presentation of offerings, or ofrendas, which guide the dearly departed to their loved ones wherever they may be.From Los Angeles to Manila, these are the special ways in which communities celebrate, mourn, and honor their loved ones.
