PREPARING FOR THE DAY OF THE DEAD
If there is a celebration that defines Mexico, it is the Day of the Dead. Throughout the state, as in the country, the main squares of the municipal capitals are adorned with an altar made by members of the community, and they star, sometimes with the traditional calaveritas, the celebrations for the deceased, but the most important thing is the cultural value of this celebration for people. In the Otomí community of Santiago Mexquititlán, for example, in the municipality of Amealco, the Day of the Dead celebrations begin on October 31, the day in which prayers for the ancestors are dedicated; or in Tolimán, where customs are deeply rooted, the elders dedicate their altars to deceased relatives and show off that simplicity still far from the excessive ornamentation of modern offerings; and in every corner of the state, the pantheons are filled with festivities and prayers that, without a doubt, are events worthy of admiration and respect.

Thus, this is an invitation to learn about the Queretan culture from one of the most important Mexican celebrations of the year: the Day of the Dead.
