Today we celebrate el Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) in Mexico. Is a very important celebration because we remember and honor family or friends that are already enjoying heaven. Most people visit the cemeteries where their loved ones are buried and decorate their graves with ofrendas or altars that are rich in symbols and are a welcoming gesture for the souls that will be visiting during the festivity. The altars or offerings can also be built in their homes. Because I live far away from my family I just make these cake and cookies to celebrate my Mexican traditions and to share them with all of you.
