Stunning pictures of Day of the Dead on 500px
In early November, people across Mexico, South America, the United States, and beyond will remember their loved ones as part of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. It’s a holiday rich with symbols, from the calaveras de azúcar (sugar skulls), made as offerings to those who have died and gifts to those still living, to La Calavera Catrina, the finely-dressed skeleton who protects those who have passed on.
As vendors roll out bunches of marigolds, their signature fragrance will fill the streets. People will dress as the Catrina, donning makeup and finery. At home and at school, people will build altars, ofrenda, to honor the deceased, while many will visit cemeteries, adorning the tombs of those closest to them with flowers.
