Today there are many designs that can be found on platforms such as Mercado Libre or Amazon where you can find personalized lockets containing a photo of your loved one. Or you can deposit some ashes on them.


You can use a charm bracelet to remember the passing years on the anniversary of your loved one’s death.

Write a song or poem

Our love, thoughts, feelings, memories and emotions can change as we grow older. Writing can be a great help in processing your thoughts, clarifying complicated feelings and expressing your emotions.

Support an A.C.

You can memorialize your loved one by supporting the same special cause that mattered to them. Supporting a C.A. that helps others can be a great way to honor the deceased.

Revisit a special place

If he had a special place during his lifetime, revisiting him on the anniversary of his death is a beautiful way to remember him. It can be anywhere; a beach, a garden, a restaurant or even watching your favorite movie.

Create an altar

You don’t necessarily have to make an altar on the Day of the Dead. You can create one on the anniversary of the death. This can be designed using photographs, food, drinks, souvenirs, cards and candles.

Often, families leave the candles burning for 24 hours during the anniversary.

Take some time out of your busy routine.

The death anniversary can be a time to get out of your routine. You can ask for some time and go to a place that brings back special memories.

Making a meal

Many families gather on the anniversary to commemorate their deceased family member. You can prepare your loved one’s favorite food and tell stories that bring smiles to their faces.

Visiting the Pantheon

Another nice custom is to visit the cemetery and arrange the grave. Afterwards you can organize a small picnic.
