Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and acknowledged around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. In 2008 the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
In our household we kept it pretty simple this year with Chili Con Carne and Cheese Stuffed Tamales. We also had a cake, just for the kids. I know, it is right after Halloween, as the Holidays start rolling in one after another!
