All Souls Day Celebration in Mexico

Dia de los Muertos is observed in Mexico by spending the night in the family cemetary with candles, food, and marigolds, the flowers of the dead to pray for and remember the beloved dead. This is what American Catholics do on All Soul's Day, by visiting the graves of loved one, and offering a field Mass in the cemetary for the souls of the faithful departed.
