Colour, art, family, humour, death and tradition. This strange, yet beautiful, combination of elements has made Day of the Dead a rare and amazing holiday throughout Mexico. Across the country, Mexicans honour their deceased family members with elaborate homemade altars as markets fill up with colourful candies, vibrant flowers and everything else needed to remember those who have passed away.
The 5 day celebration starts with the honouring of deceased children.
