Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, is a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

“He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us more potent -- nay, more present -- than the living man.” -- Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“We never bury the dead, son. We take them with us. It's the price of living.” -- Mark Goffman and Jose Molina, “Sleepy Hollow ”

“Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.” -- George Eliot
