  1. I go to my Uncle’s grave in Ensenada with a lot of my family where we eat, drink and talk about him tell the twilit hours. We bring new pictures, a pack of cigarettes and a small bottle of Tequila for his grave (he loved and die with these things). If you remember someone, are they really gone?

  2. It is a highe celebration, very very traditional and nice.

    On November the 1st, people makes “altares”, tables with decoraation, food, photos, drinks, music, etc. We believe that during the night our death family comes and take the food, and the drinks, and dance with the music. Then the spirit of the food goes, and next day we eat te food. It is very important to put candles and xempazuchitl flowers to lead our dead family to the “altar”, we enjoy that day a lot! We think of the dead like a joke, not a problem, and it is a day to remember all of our loved family who have died.

    If you have the chance come and see what we do. It is amazing and very very nice!
