This week's Facts Friday Kim shares another Halloween fact from US Today.
The Day of the Dead should really be called Days of the Dead.
The fact is from this article by By Meghan Tankersley:
The Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, takes place October 31-November 2 in Mexico.
November 1st, Dia de los Inocentes, honors children that died, and family members decorate graves with baby's breath and white orchids.
November 2nd, Dia de los Muertos, families honor adults who have died and place orange marigolds on grave sites.
The original Aztec celebration actually lasted a month long, but when Spanish conquistadors came over to Mexico in the 16th century, they merged the festival with the Catholic All Saints' Day.
