The back story: Day of the Dead is a blend of an acient Indigenous Mexican holiday with the Catholic All Saints Day (honors all saints especially those who don’t have their own holiday) and All Souls Day (honoring our departed loved ones). To this day, in Central and Southern Mexico indian villages come together in celebrations. Altars are built, photos are brought out. Sugar skulls are made. In Indian mythology, on the day of the Dead the heavens open up and souls come down at midnight to spend the day with the living relatives. Cementaries are visited, graves polished. Offerings are made to the “spirits” as they believe that happy spirits offer protection and bring good luck.
