An Excerpt from A is for America

D is for El Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, a holiday widely celebrated throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Mexican families decorate cemeteries with paper streamers and bright marigold bouquets. To remember and celebrate the people they loved, the families pray at the graves and picnic on the favorite foods of those who died. In some regions, children wear skeleton masks and buy skull-shaped pastries and candies.
