In Photos: Dia de los Muertos in Mexico City’s Zocalo

This weekend Mexico celebrates one of its most popular festivals – Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Although that might sound rather morbid, the festival is actually a celebration of life. Mexicans build ofrendas in their homes and leave out food and drink for the returning spirits of their dead loved one.
Celebrations in Mexico City’s Zocalo are already well underway – go here for the full photo collection on Flickr.
