Pátzcuaro Mexico, 2015

Before the end of October, I decided to spend the first days of November in Mexico. I skipped the Halloween parade and parties in Manhattan, to instead spend quality time with my family, and to experience the biggest celebration of Dia de Muertos in Pátzcuaro, a small town located in the state of Michoacán.

Some hours after arriving to Mexico City, we drove directly to Pátzcuaro, and checked in to a cozy hotel, in a room with a balcony facing the main square of the town. During these days, there is a market of artisanal and handmade products sold by all of the locals, so getting unique and beautiful Mexican crafts becomes a part of the festivities.

When November 1 arrives, there is a dramatic decoration shift in all houses and cemeteries around the town: thousands of yellow, orange and dark pink colored flowers cover façades and shrines. Along with good memories from the close relatives that have passed away, everyone prays and starts the celebration of Dia de Muertos.

I can personally understand and relate to the importance of this tradition, because as a born mexican, one of the most valued aspects in our lives is the family. This is why this event has such a big magnitude.

The first two days of November (and sometimes since October 31), the families gather to remember those beloved friends and family members that have died. The yellow flowers, called cempasúchil flowers, are the most caracteristic ornaments used to decorate altars and shrines in houses and cemeteries. This bright color, together with candles and the favorite goods of the deceased “attract their souls”, and this way the families can guide their beloved ones in their spiritual journey.

The most famous cemeteries around Pátzcuaro are the ones from Janitzio, Tzintzuntzan, Yunuen, and other islands around the lake.  It is outstanding to see grey cemeteries turn into such beautiful and vibrant places, and to observe all families remember with love and meaning everything they cherished about their family members.

Hope you enjoy the feeling of this beautiful mexican tradition through these pictures. I look forward to share with you the next diary of my trip there.

    Hi Denni! I’m so glad people like you get to know this places and show other people that Mexico is not that bad as they think, we have this really bad image and you can see it is really beautiful actually, I think it’s really nice of you to apreciate other culture and also cause you got to miss one of yours (Halloween).
    I’m from Monterrey Mexico, and it’s more like a big city, but still, you are welcome anytime you’ll like to come you have a friend here, and I’ll be very happy to show you the city.

    Sorry if my english is not that good 😛

    Hope you enjoyed your trip!

    Greetings,

    I admire this tradition. Those who are not among us should not be forgotten. This is a wonderful way to show your respect, love and sadness. The celebration looks beautiful with all those candles. I am sure it’s very emotional. Thank you for sharing these photos with us who are not familiar with this ritual and letting us be a part of it!

    Did you know that people make their entire income promoting ClickBank? You too could be one of the many who have quit their job. Affiliate marketing is as old as the internet. It’s not going to go away any time soon. You too can get your piece of the pie. Why shouldn’t you? Do you really like working the job you have? Are you going to be able to do it until you retire? If you’re job requires physical labor, then you know the answer to that question. There’s no way you’re going to be able to do that when you get older. That’s just the truth and no one needs to tell it to you. Right now you could be making money online. Does it require work? You better believe it does. No honest person is ever going to tell you that it’s possible to become a millionaire online without doing any work whatsoever. It’s not possible. That doesn’t mean there isn’t money to be made. There’s plenty of money out there to be made by people just like yourself. Now you know there’s going to be a pitch for a product. You’re right about that. Click on the link http://64efd6-lz41s3rcelbr7s2xl7x.hop.clickbank.net/ and check it out. There’s a video you can watch that will explain everything. It will tell you how to make money using ClickBank. Watch the video and see what you think. You too can be one of the many who earn a living promoting ClickBank. Some people earn a good living and there’s no reason why you can’t.
