Dia de los Muertos, namely the Day of the Dead, is celebrated as a national holiday in Mexico and has actually nothing to do with Halloween. With roots in ancient Aztec rituals, Dia de los Muertos is celebrated on the first two days of November (corresponding with All Saints Day, when the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead is believed to be thinnest) and is a joyful statement of death acceptance and a moment to honour loved ones who have died.
