Migration and the Spirits of Life

Celebrated annually on November 2, Dia de los Muertos, or "Day of the Dead," embraces life as it pokes fun at the Grim Reaper. (Note: In some regions, the celebration spans two days, from November 1st through the 2nd, in which case it is called Dias de los Muertos.)
