Day of the dead somewhat is the Mexican version of Halloween. Though related, the two annual events differ greatly in traditions and tone. Where as Halloween is a dark night of terror and mischief, Day of the Dead festivities unfold over two days in an explosion of color and joy. Sure, the theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members. Day of the Dead originated several thousand years ago with the Aztec, Toltec, and other Nahua people, who considered mourning the dead disrespectful. Thereforem, this is a day to celebrate all passed away loved ones with bright colors and positivity.
