The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, and other Latin American countries, to remember friends and family members who have died. Rather than mourning for the deceased, El Día de los Muertos, particularly in Mexico, is a joyful celebration consisting of building private altars called ofrendas. These ofrendas are filled with sugar skulls (or calaveras, which are named after those who already departed), cempasuchil (or marigold flowers), and the favorite foods and beverages of the loved ones who passed away. During our celebration, we will build an altar, decorate sugar skulls, listen to folktales by Veronica de Leon does , and enjoy the music of the son jarocho band Son Revoltura.
