Of all the festivals and celebrations that are held to honor the lives of the dearly departed around the world, one of the most fascinating is Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. To learn about the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells that are associated with this celebration, watch this video clip.
Celebrated in late October and early November, Dia de los Muertos is designed to pay homage to the deceased and the lives that they lived. Elaborate floral arrangements are assembled, festive costumes are designed, and edible skulls are created.
