Day of the Dead is on now, which takes place this Sunday and Monday. And there is a holiday in World of Warcraft based around the real world Day of the Dead where family members get together and remember those who have passed on.
A few rewards are included I this event. Such as a small pet called Macabre Marionette that looks like a skeleton wearing a sombrero and holding a pair of maracas, which can not be learned or kept and can only be used during the Day of the Dead event.
During the Day of the Dead, which takes place on Sunday and Monday, the people of Azeroth gather in graveyards to celebrate and cherish the spirits of those they have lost. One can find the festivities in the cemeteries of any major city where celebrants cook, drink, don costumes and more.
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.
