How Different Cultures Honor Their Deceased Loved Ones
Each culture has its own way of paying tribute to lost loved ones. One tradition in many Spanish-speaking cultures is the Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. This day gives people a chance to grieve lost loved ones and celebrate the lives they lived.
This video explains the spirit behind Dia de los Muertos and offers a glimpse of a Dia de los Muertos celebration. Traditionally, family members build altars that feature photos, candles, and trinkets that represent the memory of their deceased loved ones.
