Day of the dead celebrates the lives of people who have passed on by making alters for them. Sometimes more than one person is honored on an alter. Sometimes it is a famous person or family members, friends, or even beloved pets. Photos of the loved ones who were honored in the alters were displayed on the altars, along with other symbolic things. Food and drinks they loved, things they liked to do, clothing they wore, and objects that were important to them were also on display. Below is this years picture set of Day of the Dead, you can also read our blog post on this event.
