Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead, as it's called in English, is one of my favorite Latino celebrations. I love the idea of celebrating those who are no longer with us. Dia de Muertos gives me the opportunity to talk to my kids about death in a way that's not super sad or scary and it allows me to teach them even more about my beloved father, who left us way before they were born.
