For many in Southern California and across much of Latin America, Day of the Dead – or Día de los Muertos – is is a time when we honor loved ones who have died. This is done through different celebrations (family visits to graveyards, community festivals), treats like decorated sugar skulls, and elaborate altars.

KPCC wants to know how you mark Day of the Dead. What traditions or special plans do you have for this year? If you've built an altar, would you be willing to share the photo with KPCC? 

Everything you share will be read by journalists only, and your responses are confidential unless you tell us we may publish them.
