Mexico's Day of the Dead Celebrations

In Mexico, Hallowe'en or All Saints Day is celebrated as the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos. No longer an exclusively Mexican celebration, today's vibrant Dia de los Muertos was born when European Christianity met indigenous Mexican customs of ancestor veneration. A joyous celebration of lives past, modern Day of the Dead festivities are always attended by la Calavera Catrina, the elegant skeletal parody of death that ultimately makes all of us equal.
