As October comes to an end and November begins, two very popular fall celebrations arrive. Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos are celebrated back to back on October 31st and November 1st through the second, they may take place around the same time, but they are very different from each other. Although both holidays originated to celebrate the deceased and the afterlife, throughout the years Halloween has drifted to a commercialized holiday spent trick-or-treating and dressing up, while Dia De Los Muertos is still a celebration to the deceased filled with culture and tradition.
