"La Ofrenda", or "The Offering", represents the departed soul of a loved one coming back from the dead to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, translated in English as Day of the Dead. Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) is a holiday celebrated by many Latin Americans. This celebration can be traced back to the indigenous cultures of Mexico and to an Aztec festival dedicated to a goddess called Mictecacihuatl. Celebrators honor the dead with festivities and prayers believed to encourage visits by the souls of loved ones. Many decorate their homes and cemeteries with private altars dedicated to the souls of the departed. Offerings of food, drink, flowers, religious symbols, and other memorabilia are placed upon these altars to attract these souls. Often people will wear painted faces to honor the dead. It is believed that possessing Dia de los Muertos items brings good luck.
