Every year from October 31 to November 2, Mexicans celebrate Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Friends and family gather to remember, celebrate and pray for their loved ones who have passed. Celebrants build altars called "ofrendas" for the deceased using "calaveras" (sugar skulls), marigolds and the favorite foods, beverages and possessions of the departed. The streets near cemeteries are also filled with parades and decorations.

The origins of the modern holiday trace back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival. Though first observed in Mexico, today Día de Muertos is celebrated around the world, and Instagrammers are there capturing the festivities.
