Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico and also in other cultures throughout the world.
Dr. Cynthia Orozco At Eastern New Mexico university Ruidoso held a cultural event today in our humanities class and explained the holiday.
Celebration takes place on november first and second. I took some photos today of the altar that was built to honor the dead and Cynthia orozco allowed students to place photos of people in history to honor. Day of the dead is gaining popularity in the United States. Austin Texas has a annual parade for the day of the dead celebration.
The Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico are traced back to the indigenous cultures as long as 2500 – 3000 years ago.
