Celebrate Day of the Dead with James Bond!

With Halloween just mere days away, die-hards are searching for a way to extend the spooky holiday. For those wishing to draw out the festivities, worry not, for Dia de Los Muertos is TWO whole days (Nov. 1-2) of extra goodness.

Dia de Los Muertos is a Mexican tradition that celebrates loved ones who have passed on to the other side. Altars are created and filled with photos, gifts, incense and candles, and even little sweet treats, to guide their spirits.

In recent years, the Day of the Dead celebration has been garnering more attention in pop culture, and it will be prominently featured in the newest James Bond film, "Spectre."

If you're still dying to know more about the history of Dia de Los Muertos, check out this fantastic infographic from Morph Suits, and be sure to check out "Spectre" when it hits theaters on November 6th!
