More on Día de Los Muertos: 

Nov. 1 (12am)-Día de los Angelitos
On midnight on the Day of little angels, is when the souls of departed children arrive and are reunited with their families. The Altars of Ofrendas are filled with toys, treats and the photographs of the departed so souls know where to go.

Nov. 2 (12am)- Día de los Difuntos
Starting at midnight the departed souls of adults join. The night is filled with celebrations of their life and fum memories. The Ofrendas include things that the deceased family member enjoyed but also include 'pan de muerto', tequila, and may have jars of Atole.

Nov. 2 (12pm)- Día de los Muertos
Starting at noon large scale celebrations begin; parades and dances all honoring the lives of those no longer physically present. Families clean and restore the graves and decorate the grave sites with sugar skulls, and lots of marigold flowers often also bringing ofrendas.
