Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican multi-day holiday, acknowledged internationally.In 2008 the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl, lady of death - or La Catrina; wife of Mictlantecuhtli - La Muerte; lord of the dead. this is one of the liveliest Mexican events, because, they say, the dead come to visit their relatives. It's celebrated with food, cakes, party, favorite music and candy, the favorite of children are sugar skulls. People use skull masks, wear clothing with painted skeletons or fantasize death and decorate their houses with flowers. The festival begins in 31 Oct, ends in 2 Nov.
