Day of the Dead – El Día de los Muertos

Day of the Dead - El Día de los Muertos

The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos) or All Souls Day is November 1st this year, a Sunday. Here in Washington, DC the Mexican Cultural Institute (Instituto de México, 2829 16th Street, NW) commemorates the occasion with a traditional Altar de Muertos, as designed by Mexican paper artist Humberto Spíndola.

The day is celebrated and appreciated throughout the blogosphere. Start with Ladislao Loera, Mary Andrade, Carlos Miller and the staff of the Arizona Republic, or Jo Tuckman of The Guardian.

 

 UPDATE: 

Nice feature on the holiday in Paris, from NPR’s Elinor Beardsley.
