At the very least, the Day of the Dead ritual is 3,000 years old.
Began in Mexico as an Aztec ritual.
Contrary to some beliefs, Dia de los Muertos or the "Day of the Dead" is not "evil" or "satanic" , but rather an annual way for the living to remember their dead relatives.
It begins on October 31st (Halloween) and runs until the 2nd of November.
Some consider it to be the original beginning of Halloween.

In very early October, local bakers create "Pan de Muerto" or Day of the Day bread adorned with bones and teardrops.

Towards the last days of October, the squares fill with all types of colorful figures that are associated with death; the most popular are made of molded sugar.
