Day of the dead

Hello everyone!

So, I am back again with another post about my country. This time with the beautiful tradition of the “Day of the dead”.

As you know here in Mexico we have several traditions, all beautiful, but for me, the “day of the dead” is the best tradition ever… more than Christmas. The “day of the dead” or Día de Los Muertos is an ancient tradition where we celebrate the dead. We write Calaveras, we build altars for the people that passed away and we cook specially for them. In the altar, we put all the food that the person that passed always used to eat and then we eat it.

Also, is the time of the Pan de Muerto a bread that is very traditional and only you can eat it on this time of the year. Believe me, is worth the waiting.

Nevertheless, from 2 years now, and actually since the “James Bond movie” that was filmed here in Mexico, we have a parade! And yesterday I was lucky enough to be in Mexico City and lived it.  So, I want to share with you some videos. I hope you like them!
