25 Day of the Dead Costumes

Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is an annual holiday in which people of Mexican heritage dress up in Day of the Dead costumes and honor the deceased. Despite the name, it’s a day of ancestral remembrance and a joyful celebration of life. Homes across Latin America are decorated with marigolds, and people dress up in traditional Mexican attire. Funny stories and anecdotes about the departed are recalled as people gather to pay respects to their loved ones.
