Very colorful. I have always been curious about the Day of the Dead in Mexico. My Aunt brought back a scary handmade paper mask from the Day of the Dead on her visit to Mexico. I loved it.

Yes, it's a very tradicional day, strongly rooted in Mexican traditions. I like, according to this tradition, seeing The Dead as a lady, with whom you may even flirt.

The offerings to the dead are varied and some are real works of fine craftsmanship.

Yet, I feel it somewhat anachronic nowadays, but it's tradition that counts...
