1 November - Day of the Dead in Mexico
The Day of the Dead is a Mexican tradition celebrated on November 1 and 2. Its roots go back thousands of years, long before the arrival of the Spaniards. It has become a blend of Catholic tradition and Mexican mysticism, commemorating death as an element of life and as a way to remember and honor loved ones.
According to the belief, during this "Day of the Faithful Departed", the souls of the adults return back to the earthly world to enjoy the food that was prepared for them by their relatives and placed in the ofrenda. The objects they cherished the most, as well as their photographs are also placed on the Day of the Dead altars, so that people know to whom the ritual and the accompaniment is dedicated.
