Summary:
Ancient American civilizations from Peru to Mexico believed death is to be celebrated, not feared. Many Native American groups in pre-Conquest Mexico celebrated one day each year when their deceased ancestors would return to visit them — El Día de los Muertos. This ancient tradition has become the state of Oaxaca’s most important celebration. Parades, home altars, and gaily-decorated graves welcome back the dead. The custom has spread throughout Mexico and even to Los Angeles and Tucson. In Mexico City, November 2 is a National Holiday to celebrate this day.
