For the visitor to Mexico it is wondrous and mysterious. Come and learn about the significance of the Altar and how to build your own. Embrace the Catrina. Develop your skill of poetry as manifested through the Calavera Literaria. Altar: Either built in home or around the tombstones, Mexicans entice their passed away loved ones to come back for a visit, so both worlds the living and the dead can enjoy a great celebration together. Let´s learn where this tradition come from, how they build it and the meaning it holds. La Catrina: The grande dame of the Death represents what death means to Mexicans and how they face it. It was originally named “La Calavera Garbancera” describing a person who was ashamed of his indigenous origins and dressed as a European person who wanted to have a whiter skin. In time, this lady became an iconic image to Mexico´s culture of the Death’s celebration in the country. Calavera Literaria: These popular poems mock not only death but our best friends and worst enemies as well. After all, as the writer Guadalupe Posada said, “death is democratic,” so let’s not leave anybody out! Let´s acknowledge where these traditions come from and why it is so popular among Mexicans. Also let`s get to make our own Calaveras Literarias and an Altar.
