the Day of the Dead, November 1-2
On November 1-2, the Mexicans celebrate the Day of the Dead (more pictures at link) to remember those who
have died and on this day return to visit. Altars are built on which candles, sweets, flowers (usually marigolds) and
other presents and offerings to the dead person are placed. The public altar at the Puerto Vallarta City Hall
shown in the photo above is dedicated to Donald Colosio, who was
assassinated while running for President of Mexico in 1994.
Day of the Dead altar for the local Puerto Vallarta artist Manuel Lepe at City Hall
on the November 2, 2001 holiday. He was declared a "National Painter of Mexico"
by President Luis Echeverria in the 1970s.
Day of the Dead tradition
appears rooted in pre-Hispanic beliefs that the spirits of the dead
went neither to a heaven or hell, but wandered for years before entering Mictlan, the "Land of the Dead".
