    We know there are many rituals and celebrations all around the world, but the reasons and meaning behind them may still be diffuse. 

    Therefore, when searching about other cultures, it’s important to keep an open mind, as many happenings, habits, social, and even religious influences have built up and made the countries and their people who they are today. 

    These traditional celebrations are a way people from different nationalities stay connected to their identities, history, and ancestors. Today, you are our special guest on this trip around the globe to learn more details on many cultural practices. All aboard!

    Dia de los Muertos – Mexico

    The skulls of Dia de Los Muertos and its colorful decorations are already well-known worldwide. But what are the origins of this practice? 

    From November 1st to November 2nd, Mexican families come together to remember and celebrate the lives of those who have passed away. The belief is that, during this time, the spirits of the deceased return to the world of the living to visit their families, and so altars are made to welcome them.

    As the name itself suggests (day of the Dead), it is a whole day dedicated to remembering, valuing, and paying homage to those who are no longer with us.
