Día de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday where families celebrate with the souls of their loved ones. Altars with photos, flowers, candles, and food are set out to guide the dead to the homes of their families. Calaveras, which are the symbolic skulls that appear during the holiday, are also set out on altars. The holiday is celebrated over the span of two days, November 1st and November 2nd, and each day has a specific focus. The first day remembers children who have died and the second remembers adults. Many people in Los Angeles celebrate Día de los Muertos and it has become a cultural tradition for many people. Olvera Street has been a hub for Mexican culture and many celebrations and events take place during the holiday. For information about events on Día de los Muertos, visit this website.
