Día de Los Muertos is an ancient, Mexican, and Mexican American religious holiday, with a historically rich tradition that integrates pre-Columbian and Catholic customs. It is often celebrated in Mexico on November 1 and 2 (dates vary by region and maybe longer) in connection with the Catholic Holy Days of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.
