Day of the Dead

Since pre-Hispanic times, Mexico´s indigenous people have worshiped death and have conceived it as a duality of life, part of the cycle of nature. When the conquerors arrived, the cult of death was merged with the Catholic religion, giving rise to the tradition of the Day of the Dead on November 1st and 2nd of each year. At this time, we Mexicans celebrate our dead by going to the cemeteries to decorate them with flowers, and in our homes we place altars, so that the beloved souls leave the beyond and wander a few days around the world, visiting their family, house and friends.
