ᎠíᎪ ᎠᎬ ᏞᎾᏚ ᎷᏌᎬᎡᎢᎾᏚ (Day of the Dead), a Mexican tradition, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed... It is believed that the spirit of the dead visit their families on October 31 and leave on November 2nd.
Altars are used to welcome the ancestors' spirits into the home & are usually decorated with flowers, candles, pan de muerto, ceramic skulls, and most importantly pictures of loved ones. Food placed on the altar consists of the loved ones favorite dishes and treats. Drinks should be placed in the altar to quench the thirst of the dead after their long journey back home. 💀🌼⚰️🌺🕯
