    Honor your ancestors and lost loved ones today, Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos)
    Happy Day of the dead.

    Today is the day to make an 'ofrenda' an offering to friends and family who have passed away.

    Today is also the day to visit the cemetery and ancestors graves. You can make the ofrenda at the grave site or in your home.

    Ofrendas (altars, but not for worship), typically contain flowers, candles, favorite food of those passed away, candy, and photos of lost loved ones.

    The traditional flower for the Day of the Dead altar, is the Marigold.

    Today is also a good day to wash gravestones and clean up grave sites.

    Here is a website that has some interesting photos (no, it is NOT one of mine)

    That is the same as "All Souls Day" we observe at home.

    Nice to learn about other cultures.
