Día de los Muertos 2022

Free (with subscription)

Nov 1 - 3

Any time



ABCmouse celebrates Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) with videos and ebooks. You'll learn spanish words like ofrendas (home altar), calaveras (skull), calacas (skeleton), and pan de muerto (bread of the dead). You'll discover the significance behind marigolds, an orange or yellow flower used to help guide spirits. You'll witness beautifully prepared sugar skulls, which are used for decorations and snacks.

Although holiday symbols include skeletons, skulls, costumes, and honoring the dead, the Mexican holiday is not meant to be spooky -- like Halloween. Instead it's a colorful and joyful way to welcome the deceased back for a day (or three). The holiday honors family members who have passed on by decorating altars and graves with photos, foods and other items their loved ones loved. There is music, dancing, costumes and parades the first few days of November. It's also celebrated in the United States and Central America.
