A religious holiday for them so I don't think anyone could legally deny them their right to celebrate or acknowlege it, even if they have to work during the period that it runs.
You know I was just half saying it in jest but It was real interesting to know about La Dia de Los Muertos. Don't want to hijack a thread that was meant to be entertaining AND informative but: If David was working at a job in retail or in an office it does bring up a great question if any employer could deny him his religious rights? I'm sure this legal question has come up somewhere. Sorry, it's the lawyer in me that is really curious about this. I bet David on his winner and still never noticed.
