What can we find on an altar during the Day of the Dead?

 

On November 1st and 2nd of every year, the altars for the dead are placed throughout Mexico with flowers and food. This costume is for remembering our beloved ones who have already left for the afterlife. 

The elements that an altar has can be many and varied. The primary objects include candles, salt, incense, sugar skulls, the traditional bread of the dead, and marigold flowers. In addition, we usually set in the altars the favorite dishes of our relatives who have already left, photographs of them, sometimes personal items, and even items such as cigarettes or some liquor. In the case of children, candy or a toy can be part of the altar.

What is the goal of the Festival?

The goal of the Festival of Life and Death Traditions in Xcaret is to contribute to the preservation of the Day of the Dead traditions, which are Intangible Cultural Heritage. As Mexico's window to the world, it is also an excellent opportunity to show the culture of our country through its artistic representations, crafts, and its many traditions.
