"La Catrina" The Day of the Dead in México



 “La Catrina” was created by Mexican artists to make a metaphorical representation of the upper class of Mexico, which prevailed before the Mexican Revolution.

It later became the official symbol of death, Mexico celebrates the Day of the Dead 1 and 2 November all the country.
The Mexican death teases and plays, she is not the evil connotation that we think of in the US and Canada.


 According to Mexican folklore, "La Catrina," is her alter ego.  We know her as death, Mexico does not fear her, she relishes in her, and displays here in many ways.  
   
 Sometimes she is portrayed as cheerful, elaborately dressed, wanting to have fun and even flirtatious and seductive with mortals. We find "in purititos bones," ready to take us when we least expect. However, the relationship Mexicans have with "La Catrina" is defined by a set of circumstances intimately linked with the history and culture of Mexico, the traditions and customs of each region must consider a guest on important occasions, such as the All Saints Day (Día de Todos los Santos) and All Souls day.


According to this tradition, it is believed that the death and memory of the faithful departed, gives us a sense of identity rooted culture.
