The Day of the Dead is a Mexican celebration of pre-Hispanic origin that honors the deceased on November 2. The festivities begin on November 1 and coincides with the Catholic celebrations of All Souls and All Saints. In Mexico, it is a celebration of life remembering loved ones who came before us, but with joy and devotion, dedicating an altar to welcome them back for their visit to the world of the living, once a year. The characters are La Catrina, El Catrin and the Alebrijes - imaginary beings made up of physiognomic elements of different animals, not only fantastic but also real that form a mesmerizing being full of magic and color that accompany souls in their voyage to their new home. 

El día de Muertos  es una celebración mexicana de origen prehispánico que honra a los difuntos el día 2 de noviembre. Todo comienza el 1 de noviembre, y coincide con las celebraciones católicas del Dia de los Fieles Difuntos y Todos los Santos. En México es una celebración a la vida  recordando a los seres queridos que se adelantaron...pero con alegría y devoción, dedicando un altar para su visita al mundo de los vivos, una vez al año. Los personajes son La Catrina, el Catrín y los Alebrijes - seres imaginarios conformados por elementos fisionómicos de animales diferentes, no solo fantásticos sino también reales que forman un ser alucinante lleno de magia y color que acompañan a las almas en su viaje  hacia su nueva morada.
