Skulls, skeletons and blood were oftentimes used for worship and are still symbolically important in modern Mexico.

Lizette Cruz, a Latinx club member, said she is thankful the tradition has been brought to Cache Valley and that the university is a part of it. Dia de los Muertos is "actually a really, really happy and joyous occasion". Toys and candies are left for the children, while cigarettes and shots of Mezcal are offered to the adult spirits.

However, due to the holiday's special meaning, Día de los Muertos has spread into the United States.

Mexico has, in recent years, worked to create a public-facing aspect of the celebrations in order to appease tourists. On Saturday, the Day of the Dead parade was held in Mexico City to honor those who died in the two earthquakes the nation suffered this year.

The Day of the Dead is more than just one day, it starts Tuesday and ends Thursday with All-Souls' Day.

When someone you love dies, everyone expects you to struggle-but only for a little while. This documentary, created by Utah State students, illustrates the experiences and life of Cache Valley's Latino community. The wait staff was incredibly kind and made us feel right at home, and the atmosphere was the ideal mix of that classic Mexican feel with a touch of Disney magic in the air.

Día de los Muertos is a two day traditional Mexican celebration from Nov. 1 to 2, that celebrates the life of people that have passed away.
