Montegrappa Día de Muertos

“One of the most exciting and unusual festivals to be held anywhere in the world is Mexico’s famed Day of the Dead. Called ‘Día de Muertos’ in Spanish, the holiday is celebrated throughout Mexico, and by people of Mexican ancestry living abroad, especially the United States.

Acknowledged internationally in many other cultures, this multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and to remember those who have died. Participation in this annual event help to support the spiritual journey of the departed. In 2008, Día de Muertos was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.”
