The Children of El Dia de Todos los Santos

November 1st is All Saints Day or El Dia de Todos los Santos in Mexico.  The deceased children (little angels) are remembered on November 1st with toys and colorful balloons adorning their graves.  In Pozos, on this day, the children dress up in costumes and go to various homes to collect candy, much like Halloween night in the USA. A group of us gathered at the home of a friend with bags of candy and greeting the children. There were many more children than we expected and we ran out of candy.  I photographed them as they came into the entry to collect their sweets.
