Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a traditional Hispanic/Latino holiday to celebrate those who have left our lives and are no longer amongst the living. There are flowers, sugar skulls, candles, frames, colorful decorations, and lots of food.
Nestle hosts a Dia de los Muertos event at local Fiestas that includes face painting, free samples, coupons, and recipes to help you plan your celebrations.
