Day of the Dead


November 2 was the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Difuntos), commemorated in El Salvador and throughout Latin America. Family members visit cemeteries where they beautify the gravesites of relatives and loved ones with flowers, paint, whitewash and other decoration.

La Prensa Grafica has two image galleries showing the activities at cemeteries in San Salvador and Santa Tecla.

The author of the Hunnapuh blog has a personal account of his visit on the Dia de los Difuntos to the cemetery in Tonacatapeque which you can read here.
