Why are Marigolds used for Day of the Dead/All Souls Day

Marigolds. Often called “flowers of the dead,” cempasuchil, or flor de muerto, these bright orange and yellow flowers' fragrance is said to attract souls to the altar. Their bright and cheery color also celebrate life instead of feeling bitter about death

It's deeply rooted in pre-Hispanic Aztec rituals tied to the goddess  the Lady of the Dead, who allowed spirits to travel back to earth to commune with family members. .The fragrance of the bright orange and yellow flowers is said to lead souls from their burial place to their family home
