The history dates back to the Aztecs! Day of the Dead takes place on October 31st through November 2nd as a day of remembering family and friends who have died.
To this day, people come together to celebrate the lives they’ve lost. In many parts of Mexico, family and friends hold a big cookout and choose the lost souls’ favorite dishes as part of the remembrance. You’ll be intrigued by their sugar skulls and marigolds that they leave at the private alters they create.
Traveling is therapeutic, and by experiencing how others celebrate their losses, you may even gain a different perspective on life and death.
Mexico is a beautiful and vibrant country to travel through regardless of the time of year and because it is in close proximity to the US, you’ll be sure to find some great travel deals with us!
