Many Latinos LOVE celebrating "El Dia de los Muertos" (Day of the Dead). Don't freak out. This is not a day where Latinos gather to make zombies out of dead people, unless you piss us off and then we don't have a choice, now do we? I'm joking! (Or maybe not.) El Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated on November 2nd to commemorate friends and relatives who have passed away by building altars adorned with skulls, flowers (specifically, marigolds to honor the dead), candles, incense, tequila, and fruits or a variety of foods. Traditional music and dances are usually incorporated into the event and some people even paint their faces for the ritual.
