 While the Latin American holiday el Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) can trace its origins to Pre-Columbian traditions, through transculturation of indigenous and European customs it has evolved into a unique festival of death and remembrance. Not to be confused with Halloween, the Day of the Dead consists of specific rituals and customs that take place annually from October 31 to November 2. Skeleton and skull motifs that dominate Day of the Dead decorations have been heavily influenced by the Mexican visual arts of the early 20th century like those of Jose Guadalupe Posada, Diego Rivera, and Frida Kahlo.
