Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos is a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico. Celebrations last for three days beginning on Oct. 31 and ending on Nov. 2 when friends and families gather at gravesites to pray and honour the lives of their loved ones who have passed.
The Latin American studies and design formation departments at Langara College celebrated Day of the Dead on Oct. 29 with a local mariachi band Los Dorados, some Mexican sweet bread, and their own Mexican altar.
