Celebrating The Day of the Dead is a time-honored tradition in Mexico. Rather than an occasion to mourn those who have died, Mexicans see Día de los Muertos as an exuberant, sensual, life-affirming celebration, and create elaborate altars to honor their dead. Refer to the enclosed book to learn about the rich history, ritual, and significance that surrounds the Day of the Dead, and use the altar and figurine in the box to create your own celebration of a loved one's life.
