The common ceremony every year at 1. Nov. in Mexico is as an cultural heritage, based on the spirit that every year the dead come back for one day at the end of the harvest season to celebrate with the living family members.
Many ritual elements belong to the celebration:

  • Ofrendas = traditional altars
  • Lot of flowers, candles and symbols of death  at home, at the streets, at the cemetery 
  • Dainties etc…
