Day of the Dead

Mama Maggie's Kitchen

Day of the Dead has become increasingly popular in recent years, both in Mexico and here in the United States. The movie “Coco” was a huge success at the box office, and, for many people north of the border, it was their first introduction to this unique piece of Mexican culture.

Día de los Muertos

Dia de Los Muertos is about celebrating the dead, not being afraid of  the dead. It’s a holiday to celebrate the loved ones who have passed  away and invite their spirits into their homes to rejoin the family.

Día de Muertos ain't Halloween

The strongly scented Mexican marigolds or Cempazuchitl (“the flower of the dead”) are used to attract the departed souls. Their yellow color, like the sun, represents Life and Hope. Marigolds are placed not only on graves but on home altars and doorframes
