As many people celebrate Halloween today, another holiday is being celebrated: Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead. This holiday is celebrated throughout Mexico, particularly in the central and southern regions of the country, where the celebration originated. Day of the Dead is also observed in other regions where people with Mexican ancestry live, especially in the United States. This multi-day celebration, which takes place from October 31st -November 2nd, is a day of remembrance for loved ones and a celebration of their lives.
