Looking for some fresh Halloween inspiration? Check out Matador Trips editor Hal Amen’s photos from the 2008 Día de los Muertos in Mexico City here.

Via Hal Amen on Matador Travel:

No holiday screams “¡México!” louder than Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), celebrated November 1–2 to honor departed family and friends.

The trappings of this annual event are familiar to anyone with knowledge of Mexican culture: carefully constructed altars overflowing with personalized ofrendas for the deceased, bright orange marigolds—la flor de muertos—sugar skulls, an infinite variety of flamboyantly adorned skeletons.
