Every year, the Hollywood Forever Cemetry hosts Dia de los Muertos, a festive Mexican tradition that celebrates the lives of lost loved ones. 

November 1st is a holy day in Mexican custom on which the deceased are able to visit the realm of the living. For this reason, friends and relatives create altars and present offerings in hopes of guiding the spirits to their site.
