Dancing on Day of the Dead | Dia De Los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos (‘Day of the Dead’) is a Mexican holiday which focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

Traditionally, private altars called ofrendas are built in the home or sidewalk to honor the deceased. Sugar skulls, marigold flowers, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed are placed together, and relatives will often visit graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, Dia de los Muertos is celebrated not only in homes, with colorful ofrendas filled with a variety of objects, but on the streets, with large street festivals held in the Mission District of San Francisco and in the Fruitvale District in Oakland.

Paper Plus Outlet has a large selection Day of the Dead items, including objects to decorate your ofrenda and to wear to the street parades! We have Day of the Dead decorations including:
