Día de los Muertos

Day of the Dead,

Photobucket

or, in Spanish, Día de los Muertos,

Photobucket

is a holiday where families and friends gather

Photobucket

to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. 

Photobucket

The souls are said to return each year

Photobucket

to enjoy the pleasures that they once had in life.

Photobucket

Candle light and the scent of marigolds guide the returning souls home,

Photobucket

where their lives are celebrated

Photobucket

with food,

Photobucket

music,

Photobucket

and gifts.
