“Death is a life lived, Life is a Death that comes”
José Luis Borges
During the last days of the month of October and the first five days of the month of November, our country is filled with colors, smells, flavors, music, dance and party; the reason is to celebrate our loved ones who have left this earthly plane.
Since pre-Hispanic times he has believed in life after death, and how the dead return year after year to visit us; that belief has generated a tradition that for many foreigners and some other compatriots is somewhat strange or irrational, while for others it is a fantastic, mystical and even magical thing.
Despite the growing influence of customs and traditions from other parts of the world, the day of the dead festivities in Mexico have remained alive, and we believe they have increased in recent years; so we invite you to be part of this holiday.
In every corner of Mexico you can admire the different ways in which this great celebration takes place, such as “The Festival of Skulls” in Aguascalientes, “Festival of Life and Death in Xcaret”, “The Monumental Parade of the CDMX”, “El Xantolo” both in the Huasteca Potosína as in the North of Veracruz, “La Feria del Alfeñique” in León or in Toluca, “El Festival de la Calaca” in San Miguel de Allende, the visit to the pantheons in Pátzcuaro, Janitzio and Mixquic, the tours of Monumental Altars and Legends; just to mention a few.
So don’t stay unaccompanied by both the living and the dead to celebrate.
“Life is a big surprise, I don’t see why death couldn’t be a major” Vladimir Nabokov
