Day of the Dead, Día de los Muertos, is a Mexican holiday honoring loved ones who have passed. Celebrated on November 1 and 2 in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day, Pan de Muertos, a sweet bread, is traditionally made and private alters or grave sites are decorated with sugar skulls, marigolds and the favorite food of the deceased.
