Día de Muertos (Spanish: Day of the Dead, All Souls’ Day) is a traditional Mexican culture and custom. Especially in Mexico, the purpose is to remember the dead, give thanks, and share the joy of life. This tradition is one of the most important in Mexico and is celebrated annually on November 1st and 2nd, although in some regions the festival begins from October 31st to November 4th. It is similar to Obon in Japan, but is celebrated in a cheerful and fun way. The motif is not the fear of death, but rather the mockery of death.
Bread on the Day of the Dead: represents the spirit of hospitality and the bounty of the earth. The shape of the bread also resembles the skulls and bones of the dead. It is sweet, and there are many different ways to prepare it depending on the region of Mexico. Enjoy with delicious Mexican hot chocolate.
A piñata is a paper doll filled with sweets, toys, etc. that is used at children’s festivals (birthdays, etc.) in Mexico and other Central and South American countries.
