Dia de los Muertos Party Online Invitations

There are plenty of ways to put a modern spin on the traditional celebration of Dia de los Muertos. Traditionally celebrated between October 31st and November 2nd, Dia de los Muertos is an important holiday of Hispanic origin where families remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed on. It is believed that the gates of Heaven open at midnight on October 31st and that spirits are given permission to visit their loved ones for the day.

Dia de los Muertos celebrations at home involve preparing traditional foods and sugary sweets, crafting homemade decorations, and the adornment of the Ofrenda (altar) to honor the spirits. Celebrations outside of the home include a parade of dancers and paths of marigolds which are believed to lead the spirits to the food and gifts their families have prepared.
