dia de los muertos

Just as the use of real skulls was a symbol of life and death to the ancient aztec tribes during their month-long ceremonies, the skull now represents the celebration of life and death as part of the modern-day festivities. This ritual seems to be the only hinge that still connects modern-day Meso-Americans with their ancient predecessors. The present-day observance of Dia de los Muertos is seen as a way to honor those dead ancestors as well as immediate family members.
