Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, dates back to Pre-Hispanic and Spanish customs.The modern holiday is a synthesis of Aztec and Spanish traditions. It is not a sad occasion or a time for mourning, rather it is when family and friends gather to remember and celebrate departed loved ones. In Mexico, Dia de los Muertos is a national holiday, though it is celebrated in other parts of Latin America and the Philippines as well. Dia de los Muertos can be compared to other culture's commemorations of the dead, such as All Souls Day, Korea's Chuseok and China's Qingming.
