MESILLA CELEBRATES LIFE, NOT DEATH, AT THE ANNUAL DAY OF THE DEAD CELEBRATION Sweets, brightly colored flowers and decorations, face paint, music and dancing— these hardly seem like the proper ingredients to celebrate one of life's more somber occurrences, death. But Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, isn't really about death. It's about remembering life and honoring the memories of those that have passed on. In Mesilla, that's cause for celebration.
