Day of the Dead – Jardin, Centro San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Taken 2 November 2016.
The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday and is celebrated throughout Mexico. Family and friends get together to pray and remember their loved ones who have passed away. This is not a time of mourning, but rather it is a joyful celebration of life, food, friends and family.
The history of the Day of the Dead is a syncretism of Pre-Hispanic and Spanish customs. The celebration takes place on November 1–2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2).
In the beautiful colonial city of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico I was able to take in the sights, sounds and smiles of the Day of the Dead.
