Day of the Dead is a celebration of life and death. The dead are believed to still be members of the community, kept alive in memory and spirit. During Day of the Dead, Día de los Muertos, they temporarily returned to Earth to visit loved ones. Holiday food includes pan de muerto, a sweet egg bread often decorated to look like twisted bones. Skeletons represent loved ones often portrayed doing activities they enjoyed doing when alive. Sugar skulls are made to decorate ofrendas honouring loved ones and to give to children.
