Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration that honors the lives of loved ones who have passed away. This time of remembrance is held on November 1st and 2nd. Originally, the celebration was created in honor of woman who passed away during childbirth, which corresponds to the modern day Catrina. By the late 20th century, the 1st day became dedicated to infants and children, while the 2nd became dedicated to adults. While the celebration is dedicated to honor the deceased, it is common to see humorous depictions. This tone takes no form of disrespect, but rather focuses on the funny, light-hearted events of that loved one. In past times, as well as the present, families create altars, or ofrendas, in their homes as a clear representation of their loved one. Here, all of their favorite things are showcased, while incorporating the elements of earth, wind, water, and fire.
