“The Day of the Dead” might make you think of zombie films, but it’s actually the name given to a famous Mexican holiday that has started to gain popularity in other parts of the world. It’s a day to celebrate and honour those that have departed such as late family members, friends and even celebrities. In Mexico, the streets are filled with unique decorations, flowers, candy and parades. In Mexican culture, it’s believed that the dead visit their families and friends on October 31st and leave on November 2nd.
It’s becoming more and more popular in the United Kingdom to celebrate The Day of the Dead thanks to the unique costumes you get to wear, the lovely food and all of the beautiful decorations that you’ll be putting up. It’s often seen as a Halloween related due to its spooky theme and dark fashion, making it a great alternative to regular Halloween celebrations. There are plenty of ghoulish outfits to put on, fun face paints to try out and unique masks that are colourful and elegant.
