Rebroadcast: Day of the Dead

On October 31, kids across the US dress up in costumes to celebrate Halloween. A day later, many in Mexico, dress up in costume -- many as skeletons -- and celebrate the Mexican "Day of the Dead."

Are the holidays related? Is one copying the other?

Gustavo Arellano, contributing editor of the Los Angeles Times and staff writer with the OC Weekly's "Ask a Mexican" column, helps give us an understanding of Dia de los Muertes. Originally aired 11/1/10.
