DIA DE MUERTOS
It could be because of your local news channel, friends chatting, a newspaper article you read or movies like Spectre and Coco, wouldn’t you say that “Dia de Muertos” sounds familiar to you by now? This Mexican festivity is currently happening, a time to remember and honor those who have past away. It originated from the fusion of Pre-hispanic traditions and Catholic feasts. Proclaimed Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2003 by the UNESCO. Here you have key information on it, but there is nothing better to understand the rituals than to experience them yourself. Of course, if that’s not possible, there are plenty of events you can watch, happening all around the world, including these in Mexico City.
