Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. 

It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures, but like the Ireland’s St. Patrick's Day the celebration is being appropriated and is often treated as an excuse to dress up and drink lots of alcohol.
