Roots of Day of the Dead

This dance is impressed by the Day of the Dead. This is a Mexican vacation with Mesoamerican and Spanish roots. It is a celebration of household who’ve crossed to the opposite aspect. Ancient cultures celebrated the thinning of the veil between worlds within the fall with bonfires and candles. In Mesoamerica the useless have been celebrated in August. The Aztecs would depart meals and water on the graves of their ancestors to help of their journey to the afterlife.  The Catholic church took up this custom and celebrates All Souls Day and All Saints Day. In medieval Spain they’d rejoice by adorning graves with flowers and leaving bread and wine for the useless.
