DAY OF THE DEAD

 

One of the festivities that is a big deal in Mexico s the Day of the Death that is celebrated on the 1st. and 2nd. of November.

Mexicans firmly believe that there is life after death and that their beloved ones that had passed away continue helping them from heaven.

The way Mexicans celebrate the Day of the Death is by building altars at home to honor their death people in the family. In the altar you will normally sea the pictures of all the members of the family that had passed away lighted everyone with an individual candle. Around them you can see all kind of goodies that when their beloved ones were still in this life, loved to eat as mole, sweet bread (mmmmm, love it) rise, tamales, quesadillas atole, chocolate etc. all kind of good and delicious things because it is believed that at night, they come to feed themselves. Also you can see beautiful flowers of special colors that only you can find in such days with bright colors like bright yellow, bright purple, and bright orange, that give a nice touch to that altar.

Also the all cemeteries in all over Mexico are decorated with nice flowers as mentioned before and all the tombs have the picture of the one that lies there and also they light the tomb with candles and leave the goodies as they do with the altars.

It is frequent to see mariachis around the tombs playing and singing the songs that used to be the favorites of the guy that lies in the tomb while he or she was alive.

The main place that is very famous for this celebration is the state of Michoacan, and in Michoacan specifically the Island of Janitzio where almost all the island is a cemetery. You can see from the distance the cemetery all lighted up those days.

Enjoy ! ! ! !
