In this video I show some of the events that occur during the Day of the Dead around Lake Patzcuaro. Mexico is one of a few countries in the world where death plays an extraordinary roll in the religious life of its citizens, and the celebration of day of the dead is one of the most important religious celebrations. For Mexican, to pay respect to their dead is one of their most significant duties and the occasion of a vast celebration. on the eve of dia de los muertos, families begin preparations for the festivities. For this reason, families go to the open markets to buy food, papel picado, flowers, sugar skulls, and bread of the dead. Then they build home altars to honor their family dead, and then, they go to the cemetery to clean the graves, and put flowers, and food ofrendas for the souls to come and enjoy the goods that they most cherished when they were among the living. I want dedicate this video and thank to all the good people who let me into their home and eagerly agreed to be interviewed, and very proudly explained to me the meaning of the celebration. Thank you so much!!!!
