Day of the Dead: Celebrating Life in Mexico

Today (November 1) is the beginning of the two-day Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival in Mexico.

Contrary to its name, the festival is a celebration of life rather than death, which explains the widespread display of art, food and music.

It’s an amazing couple of days as Mexicans truly commemorate the lives of their ancestors – something that we all, as family history researchers, can relate to.

Below is a video, which explains the history of the celebration and shows what happens on the two days. Enjoy!
