Day of the Dead in Costa Rica

On November 2 Costa Ricans celebrate the Day of the Dead, however they way they do it differs from the way Mexicans celebrate it. In Tiquicia the Day of the Dead is when family members visit cemeteries to make flower offerings to their deceased loved ones, which is very similar to what Brazilians do. Here are a few images taken from the Associated Press newswires.
