Supermarket celebrates Dia De Los Muertos celebration by offering traditional treats, displays

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — It’s a Latin tradition celebrating family connection and honoring the legacy of ancestors.

The tradition is called “Dia De Los Muertos” in Spanish, or “Day of the Dead” in English.

Ordinarily, the celebration is held over a two-day period, at the beginning of November.

November first is the day when children and infants who have passed away are remembered, followed by November second when adults who have passed on are remembered and honored.

This year a local supermarket is celebrating the holiday by offering a traditional treat, “Pan de Muerto” or bread of the dead.
