Día de Muertos – Day of the Dead


Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular, the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

Most Day of the Dead celebrations involves a Calavera of some kind. The word Calavera (or calaverita in the diminutive) means “skull” in Spanish, but the term is also used to refer to a kind of poem that is written and published especially around the season of Day of the Dead. The word Calavera is generally used playfully: in the different contexts that it is used, it does not have a gloomy or macabre connotation. Calaveras remind us of the transitory nature of life, that our time here on Earth is limited, and that it’s acceptable (and maybe even desirable) to play and poke fun at ideas about death.
