In the cultures of Spain, Mexico, and Latin America the celebration is not referred to as Halloween but rather it is the Day of the Dead or All Soul’s Day. The population of those countries are predominantly Catholic. During the yearly three-day-long celebration that starts on the evening of October 31 and lasts until November 2 many things need to happen to honour the loved ones and ancestors that have passed away.  The family will build an altar for the dead in their home and decorate it with flowers, candy, drinks, and the favourite food of the deceased. The family will also have a wash basin and towel left out for the deceased to freshen up with before they attend the feast. The way to the home is lit by candles and lanterns. read more
