My daughter and beau are currently celebrating this holiday in Mexico. November 1st is All Saints Day, and November 2nd is All Souls Day in the Christian Church calendar. 3,000 years ago this holiday began in Central Mexico as a way to celebrate through food and drink with deceased relatives souls. Masking is a big portion of this festival as is decorating Mexican cities.
Some pictures of the city adorned for this festival..
More of Mexico City visit, sorry don’t have the name for this site, but sure looks great..
Looks like it was quite a 40th birthday!
