The Day of the Dead tradition in Mexico 


The Day of the Dead is a celebration that honors the deceased and allows them to temporarily return to the world of the living. Families create altars called “ofrendas”  in their homes, adorned with cempasúchil flowers, candles, photographs of their departed loved ones and their favorite foods. It 's also common to place sugar skulls and pan de muerto on these altars. 


The catrina, an elegant figure dressed in vibrant attire, is an iconic symbol of the Day of the Dead and represents equality in death. The Catrina reminds us that, regardless of our social status in life, we all share the same destiny: death.
