Mexican Traditional Day of the Dead
The Día de Muertos is a pre-Hispanic tradition with a lot of cultural wealth from Mexico to the world. Since 2008, UNESCO has recognized it as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
In the indigenous vision, it implies the transitory return of the souls of the deceased. They return home, to the world of the living,to share with relatives. Also, to nourish themselves with the essence of the food offered to them on the altars placed in their honor.
Its origin dates from pre-Hispanic times. However, today it is Catholic religious traditions brought by Spaniards in harmony with the Day of the Dead commemorated by natives before their arrival.
The ancient Mexica, Mixtec, Texcocan, Zapotec, Tlaxcaltec, Totonac, and other native peoples of our country, transferred the adoration of their dead to the Christian calendar, which coincided with the end of the agricultural cycle of corn, the main food crop of the country.
Thus families organize, on days 1 and 2 of November, a party of offerings to guide the dead on their journey to Mictlán to visit us.
The offerings have the food that pleased them in life, with the belief that they could get to share with the family and eat their favorite dish again.
On November 1, children’s souls who left before their time visit to share some time with us. On November 2, our dear adult relatives visit us. Thus they taste the beer, Chicken Pib, Relleno negro, and sweets from the region, among other delicious typical dishes placed in the offering.
