Día de los Muertos is a two-day holiday celebrating and honoring the dead. Originating in Mexico, many celebrate the holiday using a home altar adorned in pictures of loved ones who’ve passed. Their images are often surrounded in flowers, skulls, and the departed’s favorite foods.

These traditions are celebrated in our region, too, including at Seattle Center’s recent Festál series and El Centro de la Raza’s six-day Día de los Muertos that ends in an all-day event Saturday, Nov. 5.
