Inchie Mexico



The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos)
is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico,
in particular the Central and South regions,
and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places,
especially the United States.
The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends
to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died,
and help support their spiritual journey.

A common symbol of the holiday is the skull (in Spanish calavera),
which celebrants represent in masks, 
and foods such as sugar or chocolate skulls,
which are inscribed with the name of the recipient on the forehead.
Sugar skulls can be given as gifts to both the living and the dead.
