Starting on the night of the 31st, spirits of children know as Angelitos are allowed down to reunite with their families. Then continuing until November the 2nd, all the spirits find their way down to visit family & friends. Families build altars in their homes and lay out candles or flowers for the spirits to be able to find their way and have food, drinks & the deceased favourite items on the altar.
