As in many Latin American countries, Mexico commemorates the Day of the Dead or All Souls’ Day on November 2nd. The legacy of past indigenous civilizations are respected and blend with Catholic beliefs. The Day of the Dead in Mexico is not a mournful commemoration but happy and colorful. Indigenous people believed that souls did not die but that the spirits rest until the day they could return to their homes to visit their relatives.
