Day of the Dead

Day of the dead or Día de los Metros  is associated with October 31, November 1 and November 2 to coincide with the Western tradition of Halloween: All Saints’ Eve, All Saints’ Day, and All Souls’ Day. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras, aztec marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.

Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves.

This is a profound and beautiful tradition with thrives in San Francisco .
