Dia de los Muertos Date

Dia de los Muertos celebrations all start with a sugar skull (or 20) and inevitably end with a margarita. But when exactly is it time to turn on the mariachi music?

We know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry; unlike some of its holiday relatives like Thanksgiving and Memorial Day, Dia de los Muertos does occur on the same date, November 1, every year, and ends the following day on November 2.

The Day of the Dead, known in Spanish as Dia de los Muertos, is a two-day holiday honoring the spirits of the deceased. The celebration coincides with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day on November 1 and All Souls' Day on November 2.

Traditionally, this holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends in honor of those who have passed. Living relatives visit graves and build private altars that resemble elaborate shrines and can be erected in the home or at the gravesites themselves.

They surround the altars with signs of their devotion called ofrendas to honor the deceased using former possessions, sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods of the person they lost. The holiday originated in Mexico and also happened to use some of the most brilliant, beautiful, and creative designs to honor their loved ones.
