November 2 marks the second half of Día de Muertos. It is also celebrated as All Souls Day by the Catholic world. Caitlin Doughty’s book From Here to Eternity details customs practiced all over the world to celebrate and remember the dead. Doughty’s work includes an entire chapter reflecting on Día de Muertos in Mexico. The greater point From Here to Eternity is to question our current expectations and fears of death in American culture and offer mindsets to help us approach death as the natural sequel to life.
