Whether you call it “Dia de Muertos” or “Dia de los Muertos” (the Americanized version), ‘Day of the Dead’ parties tend to freak people out. But Halloween was taken so Mexico had to improvise.
Despite the macabre sounding name – Dia de Muertos – this holiday is one of Mexico’s most revered traditions. It is when spirits of our loved ones return to visit friends and family. The returning loved ones might smell a little musty so I suggest you bring deodorant as an offering.
