No Halloween

BY DANIEL WORLEY

    According to history.com, in some countries, they don’t celebrate Halloween. One place I do know that doesn’t celebrate Halloween would be Mexico. Mexico celebrates The Day of The Dead. This holiday is to celebrate and remember the deceased. This holiday is called Dia de los Muertos, the day of which honors deceased loved ones and ancestors. This holiday takes place on November the second. The celebration is designed to honor the dead who, it is believed, return to their earthly homes on Halloween. Many families construct an altar to the dead in their homes to honor deceased relatives and decorate it with candy, flowers, photographs, samples of the deceased's favorite foods and drinks, and fresh water.  Often, a wash basin and towel are left out so the spirit can wash before indulging in the feast.
