In many nations All Saints’ Day, November 1, and All Souls’ Day, November 2, are treated like a single holiday. In Guatemala, the indigenous villagers of Todos Santos (“All Saints”) honor the dead for three days starting 31 October. Families pay homage by decorating the graves of their loved ones and offering flowers, corn, squash, and orange slices at church. (Guatemalan Tourist Bureau)
