Day of the Dead, also known as El dîa de los muertos, is a traditional holiday celebrated mainly in Mexico cerebrating the lives of the loved ones they have lost. They believe that their spirits come back to visit during this time. Many families set up an altar to honor their loved ones. They put pictures, candles, and favorite foods and drinks of the ones who have passed. A common decoration used are sugar skulls or Calaveras azucar. The skulls represent the sadness of death. The skulls are always smiling and are decorated with color to show happiness and celebration of their life.
