Default Re: Halloween or Dia de los Muertos?

Two different things...sorry!

Halloween is about the time where the two worlds are in closest range, around Oct 31. As far as I know this is true, and derives from Celtics.

Dia de los muertos DOES NOT EXIST. The Catholics that invaded this world encouraged to El dia de todos los Santos day to become dia de los muertos. In Aztec times, there was a whole month for the dead adults, another whole month for the young dead, neither of them fall in October or November.
