briefly and basically, 'dias de los muertos' was a pagan celebration of an ancient people, which since the conquest and through other periods has experienced a series of "laye…ring." The choice of words, specifically "layering" refers to how over time the traditions have changed or adapted their meanings to the needs of the society that it serves. A perfect example is how after the conquest the period of celebration changes to coincide with a christian holiday. The Aztecs were pagan, no christian. However, the christians enjoyed the tradition enough not to do away with it but to give it a christian meaning. Today, especially in border states, it wouldn't be difficult to find thatmexican-Americans confuse the two completely separate holidays: holloween and dia de muertos.
Dia de los muertos is a festival to honor the dead. People place flowers, cigarretes, candies, pictures, candles, and other religious objects on graves or memorials of family… members or important people. It is a way to honor the dead's soul in the afterlife and give them goods that they can use in death. For example my Grandpa loved cigars and whiskey so my mom often leaves him a glass of whiskey and his favorite cigar on a little memorial we make to him in our house or if we don't have time to make the memorial we can put it on his grave. It is basically a day to remember dead loved ones and honor their souls.
the Dia De Los Muertos starts on the 31st of October and ends o the 2nd of November the main day is the 2nd of November.
