  • ' Day Of The Dead ' Colorfully Observed

Pies de Foto

  • Foto 1: Every year in Mexico it is the custom to honor death with the observance of "El Dia de los Muertos." All over the country people flock to cemeteries to decorate graves and to observe and honor the dead. November 1 is traditional, devoted to "Los Chiquitos," the children; the next day is for "Los Grandes,'' a tribute for the adult dead. Brass bands, such as the one shown above, are often hired for wakes and funerals in the villages. Here the band has been taken to play in a cemetery on November 2.
  • Foto 2: This particular scene might be upsetting to a matador if seen before four o'clock on Sunday. But, it is all in fun and no ill luck is wished for the subject of the scene. Note the weird' twist of the familiar Dos Equis ad in the background.

This scene shows Our Lady of Sorrows (Nuestro Señora de los Dolores) over a grave in a large cemetery in Mexico City.
  • Foto 2: In another lampooning of friends, death invades the art studio. Usually underneath such an illustration there is the friend's name and a short poem poking mild fun at him. These sketches often accompany the satiristic poems known as " Calaveras".
  • Foto 3: Left: A family is pictured keeping a candled watch over the grave of a mourned one. In some towns it is a custom to stay up all night in the cemetery between November 1 and 2. As a part of their devotion people place candles, flowers, incens, and baskets of bread on the graves.
  • Foto 4: Right: A typical scene in a rural cemetery on November 2. In some areas the men do not enter the cemetery, but stand just outside, singing a traditional song, " Albanza." After the two days of problem observation of the dead, the living are remembered and the final night is spent drinking, eating, laughing, and dancing.
