Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is a traditional Mexican holiday celebrated November 2. On this day, it is believed that the souls of the dead return to visit their living family members. Many people celebrate this day by visiting the graves of deceased loved ones and setting up altars with their favorite foods, drink, and photos.

Day of the Dead
In homes, at graves or in the schools of today
not God, but tradition and culture leads way
Holiness is out, necromancy is in
totally deceived — families gather in sin
They build altars to honor relatives now dead
using skulls, favorite drinks, fruits and baked bread
Candles are lit and dear photos of old
are lovingly viewed as sweet memories are told
So innocent it seems, these gatherings to commune
with loved ones long past, from this life now marooned
But this practice is not harmless, it’s insidious and evil
for it’s not loved ones that are reached but trecherous devils.
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 King James Version
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
(necromancer– The practice of supposedly communicating with the spirits of the dead, One who inquires of the dead.)
