I have always been fascinated with the Day of the Dead tradition. Not only because it is part of my culture, but because of what it represents.
One fo my favorite things about the Mexican culture is the belief in the after life. Whenever we would visit family members in Mexico or speak with my great grandmother or grandmother about what it was like to live in Mexico, undoubtedly, there would always be ghost stories scattered in between the stories they told about growing up. Ghost stories were such a large part of what it meant to grow up in Mexico.
