Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead (Mexico)
This is a holiday to honor the deceased, however it is often a holiday of joyful celebration rather than mourning. Family and friends gathering to pay respects and to remember friends and family members who have died. These celebrations can take a humorous tone, as celebrants remember funny events and anecdotes about the departed. (Wikipedia)
