The Society: Holidays: (Day of the Dead Holidays )

This Mexican holiday, called Día de los Muertos in Spanish, represents a rich blend of Catholic and indigenous traditions. Celebrated the same time as All Saints Day and All Souls Day, it's a time for families to feast, exchange stories and memories, and remember loved ones who have past away. Though preparations begin in mid-October, the festival officially takes place Nov. 1-2. Sites especially for children may be found in http:--The Day of the Dead Holidays Society.

Day of the Dead ( Spanish: Día de Muertos ) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. (wikipedia)
