Background: The holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and helping support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awake and celebrate with them.
If this is new to you, you can watch the movie Coco to get up to speed! Or go on line and google Dia De Los Muertos.
