This uniquely Mexican and Central American holiday features celebrations of family and friends to honor relatives and close friends who have died. The holiday occurs on November 1st and 2nd and is closely connected to the Catholic celebration All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2). The Day(s) of the Dead traditions include visiting grave sites and building private altars to honor the deceased that include sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed. We have recipes for Pan de Muerto (Bread of the Dead), Pork Tamales with Red Chile, and Mole Coloradito (Little Red Mole). Go here for the recipes.
