November 1, el Dia de los Inocentes, or day of the Innocents, is reserved for deceased children only. It tends to be a more somber day. The 2nd is often more of a celebration. Both days, as well as a few days before and after, the town is filled with these altars - at the cemeteries, in the main plaza, in businesses, schools, and in people's homes.
