The Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) is one of the most important holidays in Mexico. On this day the deceased are honored. According to popular belief, the souls of the deceased return to the families on this day to visit them. Nevertheless this is not a mourning event - on the contrary: Día de Muertos is a happy and colorful party. The streets are decorated with flowers, symbols of death and transience, skeletons and skulls in various designs, in the shops, everywhere you see pictures of Calavera Catrina. Patisseries produce shortly before All Saints the Calaveras de Dulce - sugar skulls - made of chocolate or marzipan, which bear the names of the dead on the front.
