¡Feliz dia de los muertos! Today is Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday that honors lost loved ones and their spiritual journeys with altars of offerings, filled with personal items, food and drinks that were favored by those who have passed. Altars often feature sugar skulls, candles, colorful cut papel picado (perforated paper) and marigolds, which are believed to guide spirits to the altars with their bright color and scent.
