During this festival, all family members and friends gather together to remember those who have died. To give homage to the dead, many visit cemeteries, decorate the graves and spend time there. In some homes, people make elaborately decorated altars (also known as ofrendas) to welcome the spirits. Other burn candles at the graves, offer sugar skulls, marigolds, their favourite foods and beverages as well as stay at the graves for the whole night.
In Mexico City, Day of the Dead is accomplished as a Mexican holiday along with the dead parades that fill the city’s street and everything is closed for a day or two. Overall, it’s the best time to visit Mexico City to observe and learn its cultural significance.
