4 What is the day of the Dead? More than 500 years ago, when the Spanish landed in what is now Mexico, they saw native Indians practicing a ritual that seemed to mock death. Listen Carefully

5 The Day of the Dead A ritual known today as Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, had been practiced by the local people for at least 3,000 years. The Spaniards tried to stamp out the ritual but were unsuccessful. It is still celebrated in Mexico and certain parts of the USA.

6 What is The Day of The Dead? It is a time to celebrate the dead. A time when Mexican families remember their dead, and the continuity of life. The Spanish priests moved the ritual so that it came at the same time as the Christian holiday of Halloween (in Spanish: "Día de Todos Santos,") As a result the Mexicans now celebrate the Day of the Dead during the first two days of November rather than at the beginning of summer.

7 What happens in the celebrations? The day’s activities consist of visits by families to the graves of their close kin. At the gravesites family members start by sprucing up the gravesite, decorating it with flowers, setting out and enjoying a picnic, and interacting socially with other family and community members who gather at the cemetery. Families remember the departed by telling stories about them.

8 What happens in the celebrations? The Day of the Dead is a time for the dead to return home and visit loved ones, feast on their favorite foods and listen to their favorite music. In the homes, family members honor their deceased with ofrendas or offerings which may consist of photographs, bread, other foods, flowers, toys and other symbolic offerings.
