what is the day of the dead:
- the origins of the modern Day of the Dead Mexican holiday date back hundreds of years to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl
- Mictecacihuatl is known as the Lady of the Dead, since it is believed that she was born, then sacrificed as an infant
- Her role is to watch over the bones of the dead and preside over the ancient festivals of the dead
- Día de Muertos is observed because the Mexican government made it a national holiday based on educational policies from the 1960s
- Many other cultures around the world have similar traditions of a day set aside to visit the graves of deceased family members.
