The Day of the Dead, a Mexican and Latin American Holiday is a celebration honoring friends and family members who have died. November 2nd or All Souls Day is the date for honoring adults, but November 1 (All Saints Day) is the "Day of the Innocents" or "Dia de los Angelitos" for remembering children. "Ofrendas" or small shrines are built with food and drink favored by the dead including sugar skulls and 'pan de muerto' a sweet egg based bread, and are usually decorated with photos of the dead, Marigolds "Cempazuchitl" and cockscomb flowers. Bright tissue paper banners 'papel picado' are posted as decorations.. Calaveras and Catrina figures of skeleton women and men elaborately dressed and costumed or going about their daily business are popular. Many are placed on ofrendas to represent the person being honored.
