La Catrina cometh.

Mictecacihuatl, the goddess, the “Lady of the Dead,” presides over us during Día de los Muertos.

Many peoples worldwide honor loved ones who have died by building altars with their favorite foods and beverages, pictures of the beloved, as well as marigolds, candles, and memorabilia “to encourage visits by the souls, so the souls will hear the prayers and the comments of the living directed at them.” Others believe it is the day when “loved ones return to earth…to offer advice and guidance and are to be treated with respect and every hospitality.” (thehealingrose.com)

Unlike the Spaniards (who landed in Mexico some 500 years ago), who viewed death as the end of life, the natives viewed it as the continuation of life. Instead of fearing death, they embraced it. To them, life was a dream and only in death did they become fully awake. (azcentral.com)
