1st and 2nd November are known as �Los D�as de los Muertos� or the Days of the Dead which are an important pre-Conquest celebration in Mexico, and surprisingly enough, cheerful and festive occasions when Mexican families honour their deceased relatives. One of the most popular dishes at this time of the year is Calabaza en Tacha, candied pumpkin.
