Reasons for Celebrating Day of the Dead Day of the Dead is time of joyous celebrations and festivities to show commitment and love to the dead hence people invest a lot of money and time in making this day a success. Preparations for the festivities of this day often begin early. Ironically, there are those that celebrate this day out of fear. This is mainly because of the folk tales that are rampant on what will happen should someone neglect their ancestors on this day. For instance, when a spirit comes then finds paltry offerings or that an altar was not built for them they feel angry and sad especially when other spirits have bountiful of offerings. In addition, spirits that are neglected may seek revenge on their living folk. This may be through illness or death soon after this holiday.
