Dia de Muertos

The next festival is arguably quite unique. In most countries in the world, people visit friends or family members who have died by praying or visiting their graves. It is different in Uruguay. Right on November 1st, they actually celebrate friends or family that are not alive by visiting their graveside with costumes that are colorful and flashy, and most of these are skull costumes. Although the method is different, this Uruguay tradition and holiday aims to pay respects and to remember all those who have left us.
