During Dia de las Muertes, which is November 1 of each year, families honor their deceased ancestors by decorating their graves, and by leaving the ancestors' favorite food, alcohol and treasured possessio...ns at the gravesite of the ancestors. The families, including the kids, then spend the evening, often until after midnight, in the cemetaries, beside the decorated graves. This picture is of a decorated gravesite, late on Noches de las Muertes!
