Though many people refer to Día de los Muertos as Mexico’s Halloween, it’s a common misconception. While Halloween focuses on the scary and eerie aspects of death, Día de los Muertos is all about laughing in the face of death. It’s about celebrating loved ones, not mourning them. That means no tears, just music, food, and a whole lot of cocktails— for three full days!
If you’re throwing your own Día de los Muertos party, it’s important to keep things as traditional as possible. Serve guests tamales or homemade pan de Muerto, and stock the bar with tequila, mezcal, or Mexican beer. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with champurrado. When you start decorating, hang papel picado banners and complete your centerpieces with marigolds and candles—two traditional symbols believed to “guide the dead back to the living and towards your celebration.” You also can’t forget sugar skulls, probably the most iconic symbol of the holiday.
