Oaxaca de Juárez has skeletons in their closets. Large numbers of them all over the city have been escaping and appearing as Day of the Dead decorations.
Día de Muertos or Día de los Muertos is a holiday celebrated on October 31st, and the 1st and 2nd of November. It originated and is mostly observed in Mexico.
Although associated with the Catholic celebrations of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, Dia de los Muertos has a much less solemn tone and is portrayed as a holiday of joyful celebration remembering loved ones who have died rather than mourning.
