In Jerahuaro, Michoacan, we also celebrate the Day of the Dead, on November 2nd of each year. Every family brings flowers to the graves of their families. Also, we put an altar in own houses with the things that the person liked. For example: food, bread, flowers, water and the picture of the person on the top. The altar should have three steps where the food should be placed. On the floor we make a cross with the flowers of "cempasuchil" and white candles.
