dia de los muertos

Rustic Mexico wedding

Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is an ancient Aztec ritual celebrated in Mexico and certain parts of Central America and the U.S. On November 1 and 2, wooden skull masks are donned and people dance in honor of their deceased relatives. While holiday traditions vary from place to place, food always plays an important role. The sweet, rich, glazed egg bread, Pan de Muerto, is always served though it too varies in shape and decoration from region to region.
