Day of the Dead or "Dia de los Muertos" is a Mexican holiday where deceased loved ones return to the world of the living to visit with their families.

It is viewed as a celebration, where families make altars filled with the favorite foods and beverages of the deceased and decorate the grave in colorful flowers.

People living in the mountains of central Mexico see a rise in Monarch butterflies around this time of year, making them believe the butterflies to be the spirits of the dead.
