Mapa de los Muertos/Map of the Dead

Every year, people around the world gather to celebrate the Mexican holiday of Día De Los Muertos/Day of the Dead and honor friends & family who have passed away. Celebrations traditionally take place between October 31 - November 2nd, but there are events happening throughout October.
