Dia de los Muertos

A sunny November sunday day in the city center of Rome. Hundreds of colorful Mexican mariachis, singers and traditionally dressed men and women celebrate one of the most heart-felt day of the year: the “Dia de los Muertos” (day of the dead).

Traditions connected with the holiday include honoring the deceased using calaveras and marigold flowers known as cempazúchitl, building home altars called ofrendas with the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these items as gifts for the deceased
