El 2 de noviembre se conmemora el Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a multi-day celebration of the cycle of life and the loved ones who have passed away. El Dia de los Muertos traces its origins back to the rituals of the Aztec and other Indigenous Nahua civilizations of what is now central Mexico.

Today, many people observe the holiday through the traditions of the past, like setting out offerings of flowers, such as la flor de cempasúchil, candles, and traditional foods including the sweet and aptly-named pan de los muertos (bread of the dead).

Since Protected content , the holiday has been recognized by UNESCO on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in honor of this celebration that keeps Mexico's rich history and traditions alive.

We will meet to watch Disney-Pixar movie "Coco" and we will follow by some of our Mexcicans friends telling us about their own family traditions.
