Dia De Los Muertos ~ Mexican Tradition ( Day of the Dead )
is a three-day Mexican holiday to honor and celebrate loved ones who have died.
When the Spanish Conquistadors landed in what is now Mexico, more than 500 years, ago they encountered natives practicing a ritual that seemed to mock death. A ritual the indigenous people had been practicing at least 3,000 years. A ritual the Spaniards tried unsuccessfully to eradicate.
