The Day of the Dead is a celebration throughout El Salvador. It is customary to go to the cemetery to pray and place flowers on the graves of loved ones who have died. Wreaths of natural flowers or paper are placed. It is also customary to place wreaths of cypress leaves for its pleasant aroma.
El Salvador Celebrations include significant events such as Holy Week, the day of the cross, the July festivities, the August festival, the Nejapa balls of fire, independence day, all souls day, the national pupusa day, the San Miguel carnival, and Christmas.
El Salvador may be the smallest country in Central America but its certainly one of its most charming. Less touristy than its neighbours, El Salvador is rich in natural beauty, pristine beaches, countless volcanoes, many Maya ruins and a great culture and rich history.
