Day of the Dead is observed annually from November 1 through November 2 in Mexico, and many Latin American countries. However, I bet you didn’t know that it’s also celebrated in other parts of the world as well. Intrigued?

Growing up in Puerto Rico in a Catholic home, we never really celebrated Day of the Dead as it’s known in the United States, Mexico, and other countries. We commemorated the saints on All Saints Day on November 1st, and remembered the dead during All Souls’ Day the following day on November 2nd. I didn’t know about Día de Muertos until I moved to the United States.
