Day of the Dead

Mexico's Day of the Dead (dia de los muertos) where deceased family members take centre stage. For two days at the beginning of November each year the people of Mexico gather at graveyards to honour those that have passed before them. Mariachis play, incesnse burns and the atmosphere is more one of fiesta than wake, so is the Mexican attitude to death.
