    Today is Day of the Dead in Mexico. This is the day to remember
    family and friends that are no longer with us. This day is
    simultaneously somber and festive. The cemeteries are packed with
    visitors, graves are cleaned and festooned with marigolds, the official
    Day of the Dead flower, mariachis walk around and sing to them.

    Altars are placed in the home with photos, foods, flowers and other
    items the deceased might have liked.

    You start your day by having Day of the Dead bread with your coffee.
    It’s very tasty, sprinkled with sugar and decorated with femurs.

    People also write “Calaveras”, poems to the dead.

    There are different types of candy sold on this day, sugar skulls being
    the most popular.

    This is the most iconic image of death that I can remember. She is
    “La Catrina”.

    Here is my La Catrina, Skelita Calaveras. May our loved ones rest in peace.
