Latin America Day of the Dead Photo Gallery
In this Friday, Nov. 1, 2013 photo, candles illuminate gravesites in the San Gregorio cemetery during the Day of the Dead holiday on the outskirts of Mexico City. Across the Western Hemisphere, people are paying homage to lost relatives in observances that began Friday on All Saints Day and continue Saturday with All Souls Day. The combined celebration known in many places as “Dia de los Muertos,” harks back to the Aztecs but has become part of Roman Catholic traditions. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte)
