Mexico is characterized by its beautiful traditions, moments that we share with other Mexicans to commemorate special days that have marked our history.

Undoubtedly, one of the most important for everyone is the Day of the Dead, in which our beloved deceased are honored.

This festival is so great in our country that every year thousands of people come from all over the world to see how Mexicans celebrate our dead, since in most cities in the region, a series is held of festivals, parades and ceremonies, alluding to this beautiful tradition.

How is the day of the dead celebrated?

On the first of November we celebrated the deceased children from all over Mexico; while the second, we celebrate the adults, and both leave at 12 AM the next day. The dead come to visit their family and friends every year, with the aim of spending one more moment with those of us who are still here and enjoying their greatest pleasures. That is why, as a thank you, we follow a series of traditions to pamper our loved ones.

Visit the pantheons.

When we visit our loved ones in the respective pantheons where they were buried, as well as in the offerings, it is a tradition to make a small altar in their tomb, full of beautiful flowers, food, drinks and objects of value for the deceased.
