Feliz Dia de los Muertos
This day is celebrated throughout the world in varying forms,
but in particular in Mexico and Central and Latin America,
Dia de los Muertos is a time of reflection when families come
together to celebrate rather than mourn their dead, praying
for and remembering those who have passed. It is traditionally
taken place during November 1st and 2nd, has its roots in the
Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihautl who was
Queen of Mictlan, the underworld, and the ruler of the after-life.
She is also know as ‘La Muerte’ - Death.
