Day of the Dead

Today marks the observance of an age-old tradition that is “Dia de Los Muertos/Day of the Dead” in the Mestizo/Latin American culture. While in Belize, Halloween has become more widely celebrated, there are a few who observe the Day of the Dead, today November 2. In San Pedro Catholic followers normally hold a day of prayer and visit their deceased relatives at the cemetery.
