Celebrate with the Dead During Day of the Dead!

November 1st by Blizzard Entertainment

Can you feel it?
The spirit world draws close during the Day of the Dead.
This is why we decorate the graves of our dearly departed with flowers and candles and offerings: To welcome them back, even if only for a time.
So come! Dance with me!
Let us cherish and honor those we have lost in their ghostly presence so that they might eat and drink and smile and know that they are loved. – Catrina
