The Day of the Dead is a Mexican tradition celebrated from October 31 to November 2 in which our deceased are honored. This conception of celebrating death originated as a syncretism between the Catholic celebrations (from Spain) and indigenous celebrations (from Mexico), a mixture of both cultures.

Centuries later, the fictional character of La Catrina or Calavera Garbancera was added, created by the Mexican illustrator Juan Guadalupe Posada and popularized by the famous Mexican painter Diego Rivera. This character represents the hypocrisy of society towards a sector popularly known as chickpeas, that is, people with indigenous blood who claimed to be Europeans, denying their culture and roots. On the other hand, it also represented the demystification of death.
