El Día de los Muertos

El Día de Muertos is celebrated in Hispanic countries, instead of Halloween.

The news story is in Spanish (because I have AOL Latino). Here's a neat slide show of the day in Mexico. Slides 11-13 include cake or sugar skulls, so skip these if you show it to your children. The flower displays are beautiful, as this day is a celebration of the lives of loved ones who have passed away.
