Hi

I read this article about day of the dead that it is about praying and remembering the love ones. I am wondering to know that why do some Mexican children wear masks on day of the dead. Do you have any idea about the day of the dead, and why children wear masks on the very day? Share your knowledge with me please.

Thanks

    Hello

    The customary Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos), commemorated between October 31st and November 2nd, is a commemoration in which Mexicans recall and respect their deceased loved ones. I think this is the way to pay a tribute to their dead ones. All over the Mexico It is a festive and colorful holiday.

    To celebrate it in a traditional way Mexicans also visit cemeteries, and decorate the graves of their love ones and spend time there in the presence of their deceased friends and family members. It is a rich cultural ritual and Mexicans love to do it every year. They also make elaborately decorated altars in their homes to welcome the spirits.

    Wearing masks on the day of the dead is the essence of the celebrations. It is a common believe that on this very day, sprits come back to earth to their love ones. And celebrations are based on this reunion. Overall this festival is a great way to greet your deceased family members.

    I guess this is it.
    Thanks
