KTSM – Hispanic Heritage Month begins later this month, and part of Mexican culture includes celebrating the lives of those who have died. In most areas, Day of the Dead, or “Dia de Los Muertos,” is actually a series of days. November 1 is meant to honor the children and babies who have died, while November 2 is when adults are honored and celebrated. “It’s a day when there is no lamentation,” Historian Bernie Sargent explains. “They are not feeling down because of somebody they lost.”
