How to Play Day of the Dead Slots January 3, 2017
Death rituals commemorating the passing of ancestors have been observed for as long as 2,500 to 3,000 years. The Aztec used to hold their festival during the ninth month of their calendar which corresponds to the month of August nowadays. Their festivities were in honour of the goddess known as the Lady of the Dead which corresponds to the modern Catrina in Mexican culture. At the time, skulls of defeated enemies were kept as trophies and displayed during the rituals.
The Day of the Dead is an important Mexican holiday which takes place over October 31st, November 1st and November 2nd and during which people pray for their loved ones who passed away. Among the traditions are the building of private altars, honouring the dead with sugar skulls and marigolds and visiting the deceased graves with offerings of their favourite food and beverages. The most common symbol of the holiday is the skull which celebrants wear as masks called calacas. The holiday food includes pan de muerto - a sweet egg bread, colada morada - a spiced fruit porridge and sugar or chocolate skulls.
