Día De Los Muertos: Images From Around The World

From Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, Mexicans and Mexican-Americans alike commemorate Día de los Muertos, a holiday that honors their dearly departed. Day of the Dead celebrations traditionally involve ofrendas, spirits and food galore, and vibrant decorations like flowers and spiritual ornaments. Many also pay tribute by painting their faces in the style of “La Calavera Catrina,” and decorating sugar skulls in memory of loved ones and the afterlife. Here’s a look at how people around the country and beyond are celebrating the annual event:
