    Families make and decorate altars. The altars are used for putting up family pictures and making sure family members that passed away can visit their altar on Day of the Dead. Altars are decorated with offerings, pictures of the family members they are honoring, pan de muerto, sugar skulls, and food.

    A lot of the altars are decorated with a flower called Cempazúchitl, also known as Marigolds. The flower is supposed to guide the spirits to their altars. A lot of altars are also decorated and designed with Marigolds.

    On Day of the Dead, families have parties, make lots of food, and do activities their relatives used to enjoy. A lot of places in Mexico have parties, festivals, and they decorate cemeteries for people who visit family.
