In Mexico All Saints' Day is devoted to Los angelitos - all the dead children. This is a prelude to November 2's Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, a national holiday on which all the grownups ghosts come back. To help them find their way back to the homes where they once lived, still-living family members often shoot off firecrackers and strew a path of flower petals from the graveyard to the front porch.
