This short documentary is interesting, and has taught me some things about the Day of the Dead that I didn’t know. For instance, did you know that the Day of the Dead is actually celebrated over two days? November 1st, All Saints Day, is for departed children, while November 2nd, All Souls Day, is for departed adults. Give it a watch.
