The most popular holiday in Mexico is the Day of the Dead. According to tradition, those who have departed from the world come to visit us on this day. In the workshop, an explanation of the tradition of the Day of the Dead in Mexico will be given with the traditional, historical and decorative elements of the altar. We will talk about the indigenous and Christian elements and their contemporary meaning. At the end of the activity, we will share the traditional bread of the dead and discuss the different ways to honor our ancestors.
