Trick or Treating Through Day of the Dead

While Halloween has nothing to do with Day of the Dead, they are close together on the calender. While the Halloween tradition has made its way into the larger centers in Mexico it is not celebrated in Zacango. However, on the last evening of the Day of the Dead celebrations (Nov. 2) the kids do go around requesting the bread, fruit, and other goodies from the alters. It was great to watch our kids get so excited about their collection of fruit and bread as they proudly spread it out on their beds at the end of the night.
