El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Community Altar
El Día de los Muertos (the day of the dead) is a Mexican holiday celebrated on November 1st and 2nd every year. Other Latin American countries celebrate a variation of the holiday, but it originates in Mexico and is unique to this country. These two days are used as a time to celebrate and honor loved ones who have passed on. Learn about this lively tradition by reading some books about it and/or watching some videos that give it more context. Then, bring the family or community together to participate in building an altar for el Díade los Muertos.
