Day of the Dead, a full of life celebration

Mexico is a country full of traditions, culture and of course, is famous for spicing up and adding a festive touch to practically everything. An example? The celebration and the warm welcome with which death is viewed. 

The Day of the Dead or Day or the Day of the Dead Saints is the Mexican most representative festivity, it is a sample of the synergy that takes place between the pre-Hispanic culture and the Catholic beliefs. The tradition says that the spirits of the deceased return once a year to spend time with their loved ones, who have already prepared altars to receive their dead, these altars have flowers, sweets, the favorite food of the deceased, drinks, music and incense. 

The tradition is so cherished that since 2008 UNESCO has considered it an intangible heritage of humanity.
