What is Dia de los Muertos?
Día de los Muertos is a celebration of life that originated in central and southern Mexico and dates back 3,000 years. But in modern day celebration, people paint their faces to look like skulls decorating it to represent a deceased loved one or an expression of themselves.
To remember and honor the memory of deceased loved ones. It is not a gloomy or morbid occasion, rather it is a festive and colorful holiday celebrating the life of those who have passed on.
