Dia de los Muertos is a unique Mexico tradition. Muertos is an affirmation and reflection on life. A time during which the community remembers its' dead with affection and respect. It notes the passage of time and gives young and old a time to meditate on life's impermance.

HIstorically, the Aztecs celebrated a variety of ceremonies honoring the dead. OCHPANIZTLI, "the sweeping of the way", was one such ceremony. Every home was swept and cleaned. Householditems such as pottery were destroyed and replaced as part of a later ceremony. During Panquetzaliztli, special foods were eaten and offered to the dead including candy & sugar offerings, special breads and sauces. So deeply were these ceremonies of respect and recognition ingrained into the indigenous psyche that they continue to the present.

Irreverent humor and political satire are also important aspects of Day of the Dead. Traditional and hilarious depiction in the form of skeletons mimicking human frialties poke fun at the vanity of the living!
