Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday where families can reunite with the souls of relatives that have passed away. According to History.com, the holiday is celebrated each year from October 31st to November 2nd. The Catholic faith adopted November 1st and 2nd as All Saints Day and All Souls Day, respectively. The story goes that, "the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31st for the spirits of children to rejoin their families for 24 hours while spirits of adults can do the same on November 2nd." Dia de los Muertos is meant to be a fun reunion, so in the spirit of gathering with those you love, these L.A. restaurants are serving some special ofrendas.
