All Saints Day is November 1st, Día de Todos los Santos
Mexicans honor their dead relatives and/or friends (who were less than 18 years of age and unmarried) with candles, food & flower offerings, its a Pre-Hispanic tradition to leave food on the graves at dusk. A little more romantic and truly spooky than Halloween. This is a cemetery in Merida.
