The day after All Saints Day is a day celebrated for the dead – All Soul’s Day. This day is a day to commemorate the faithful departed.


The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. This holiday has become some sort of family reunion. It is the time of the year were members of the family/clan see each other again


We express our love to our beloved dead ones by visiting their tombs, lighting candles and by offering flowers and prayers. People typically stay in the cemetery for hours while waiting for the lighted candles they offered to be consumed.


People go to cemeteries to be with the souls of the departed and build private altars containing the favorite foods and beverages as well as photos and memorabilia of the departed. The intent is to encourage visits by the souls, so that the souls will hear the prayers and the comments of the living directed to them.

In Mexico, this holiday is known as “Day of the Dead”.
