30 Oct – 02 Nov 2019
What is Mexico’s Day of the Dead tradition all about? Well, its definitely not Mexican Halloween. Its a happy celebration of our decreased relatives. We believe the dead awaken from their eternal sleep to celebrate with their living relatives. It is a time of joy, where we remember friends and family who have passed by fondly reminiscing and sharing anecdotes about them.
It is not a sad or morbid event, but an annual reminder of that special person and the happy times you shared with them. We honour them by building elaborate alters brimming with their favourite foods and adorned with flowers, including a path of marigolds, which guide them back home. We light incense to open the portal allowing our lost relatives to join the party. Join our Day of the Dead celebrations from 30 Oct – 02 Nov 2019 at El Tajín.
