Also worth mentioning, both holidays feature the presence of spirits and skulls; although Halloween has a macabre connotation and an idea in which the beings from beyond hurt and cause fear, the spirits and skulls of the Day of the Dead are always cheerful, almost behaving as if they were still alive plus they are invited to return so they can be honored.
This video shares the cultural significance and symbolism and will hopefully inspire you to celebrate.
The Day of The Dead is a sacred tradition that not many people are aware of, and it means a lot to those who lost their loved ones. It takes place on November 1st.

Slow down. The devil gave him a small ember to light his way.
