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 2st this year, a Tuesday. Here in Washington, DC the Mexican Cultural Institute (Instituto de México, 2829 16th Street, NW) has a traditional Altar de Muertos, which also commemorates the centennial of the Mexican Revolution.

The day is well-appreciated on the Web. Start with Carlos Miller and the staff of the Arizona Republic; for more detail, see Skulls to the Living, Bread to the Dead by Stanley Brandes.
