Day of the Dead - How is it celebrated?
We are a group of university students who love Mexico and enjoy sharing the history, food, traditions and local face of the country to tourists. We love to continue preparing ourselves to give excellent attention as we would like to receive it to us.
The day of the dead in Mexico is a celebration full of colors, flowers and food. People prepare to remember the dead through offerings.
Would you like to know the origin of this party? In this tour we will talk about the pre-Columbian conception of death and its rituals, as well as the journey to the underworld (Mictlán).
We will address evangelization and how Catholic elements were integrated into the offering. In addition to how nationalism highlighted this celebration as a family tradition throughout Mexico.
We will visit the typical altar of the 2nd most important market in the city. In addition to seeing and tasting sugar skulls, traditional sweets, mole and looking at cempasuchil flowers.
We will walk through:
- Flower and fruit area
- Traditional altar
- Day of the dead food area
If you want to know why we Mexicans celebrate and mock death, then you will love this tour. Also if you have seen movies like "Coco" or "James Bond - Spectre" you will be fascinated.
