Day of the Dead

 

After we visited San Pedtro Atocpan on the tour with Pata de Perro DF on 2nd November.

We toured the cemetery at the second town, San Antonio Tecomitl, on the Day of the Dead.

Decorations

 

You can walk around the cemetery.

And, you can see how the Day of the Dead is celebrated, and the graves decorated.

 

The flowers consisted of many yellow and orange colored marigolds. And, there were other flowers, too.

 

Other decorations include skulls and skeletons, balloons, candles, incense, and crosses.

 

You can see family and friends decorating the graves.

And, they sit by the graves as they joined the departed on their spiritual journey.

 

The Mariachi moved around the cemetery, and performed for different groups.

 

We were there during sunset.

Altar ~ Ofrenda

 

Altars are also made in places like people's homes, churches, hotels, and workplaces.

 

We stood in a circle at the end of our visit to the cemetery.

And, we were asked to share what we would like on an altar dedicated to ourselves.

 

Think about what you would like to have on an altar.
