In Mexico, today is Día de los Muertos (or “Day of the Dead”)—a holiday where families come together to have an open Día’lect with their ancestors who have passed. People prepare elaborate altars to invite their deceased relatives back home for a visit. As a two-day fiesta filled with food, family, and friends, this altar’nate form of honoring ancestors really is an I’Día worth sharing.
Marigolds, with their bright petals and strong scent, are believed to guide the souls of the deceased back home.
Sugar skulls and other treats are ready to feed the souls of the nearest and Día’rest once they arrive.
