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.
“Families create altars (ofrendas) to remember the dead. They prepare traditional food and family and friends gather to pay respects and remember friends and family members who have died.”Wikipedia
“Families clean and decorate their loved one’s graves, and in some parts of Mexico, people spend all night in the cemeteries beside the graves of their relatives and some people have picnics at the grave site as well.”Wikipedia
We were looking forward to visiting the cemeteries, but due to Covid-19 the government closed the cemeteries to large gatherings. Families must make appointments to visit the gravesites.
We got over 16,000 steps in walking all over the streets and markets. It didn’t kill me so next time I’ll Meet You in the Morning with one last look at Oaxaca.
