And there is the UNAM megaofrenda... so while not big in the attract buge amounts of tourists it is still kind of big.
And really Haruki? Still up to last year I had the day off for Día de Muertos... Haven't checked out my new school calendar year; but I assuming I ll have them.
Some schools still do it, especially the religious ones. Non-religious schools usually don't give them... but I might be wrong. I haven't had it for a really long time, though.
Of course, I moved to the US last year, so I'll likely never have that day off from school again. I traded it in for Thanksgiving.
