El Día de los Muertos

All Day of the Dead Info You Need to Know

El Día de los Muertos is an important holiday in Mexico and the U.S. amongst Mexican-Americans because of its significance…We remember our defunct loved ones.

There is a tendency in the last decade to celebrate this holiday amongst Hispanics, and sometimes in schools because this celebration is a window to Hispanic culture.

I celebrate with my family at the Museo del Barrio in Manhattan where we can participate in many activities that explain the traditions and help us keep in touch with our Hispanic heritage.
