Shot of a woman dressed as la Catrina at a Dia de los Muertos procession.
Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead) in Mexico represents a mixture of Christian devotion and Pre-Hispanic traditions and beliefs. As a result of this mixture, the celebration comes to life as an unique Mexican tradition and celebration including an altar and offerings dedicated to those deceased. The altar includes four main elements of nature – earth, wind, water, and fire. The celebration occurs on the 1st and 2nd of November, in connection with the Catholic holy days of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.
