Día de los Muertos - Guests from the realm of the dead
The "Dia de los Muertos", the Day of the Dead, is one of the most important holidays in the Mexican calendar. As in Europe, the deceased are commemorated in Mexico on November 1st and 2nd. Their souls return to the families on this day to visit and celebrate with them. Lanterns are hung up, carpets of flowers point the way to the richly decorated mortuary altar. Plenty of food and drink, smokers and other refreshments should not be missing. There is dancing, singing and laughing. There is a hustle and bustle on the streets.
This colorful and morbid festival is not a mourning event, but a colorful folk festival in honor of the dead, who return to their loved ones for a brief moment every year.
Handmade in Germany, this Christian Ulbricht Nutcracker is beautifully crafted with a great attention to detail.
