One of the richest traditions of Mexicans.
Mix of old European cultural traditions brought in by the Spanish conquistadors and enriched in the cult of Lady of the Dead of the Aztecs, "Mictecacihuatl".
This tradition is also rich in variety, as each town and region give it a special touch. [link]
Una de las tradiciones mas ricas de los mexicanos.
Mezcla de viejas tradiciones culturales europeas, traídas por los conquistadores españoles y enriquecidas en el culto a la señora de la muerte de los aztecas, "Mictecacihuatl".
Ademas de ser rica en variedad, ya que cada pueblo y región da a la tradición un toque especial.

I love how positive the Día de los Muertos is. Death is just natural, so why cry if you can make such a nice celebration out of it instead? Those colors are so pretty. :3
