Day of the Dead Costumes
Dia de los Muertos is the authentic name of the sacred holiday that non-Mexicans also know as Day of the Dead. It is celebrated on All Saints Day and All Souls Day directly following Halloween. It is a part Catholic, part Aztec ritual celebrating the dead. The point is to celebrate their life rather than mourn their death. Activities with lots of food and drink as well as Day of the Dead costumes are part of the ceremonious occasion.
