The ancient civilizations that populated what is now Mexico honored death as a consequence of life and part of the cycle of nature.

The pre-Hispanic cult of death was one of the elements that merged with Catholicism, in a religious syncretism that endures to this day, being one of the most deeply rooted traditions among Mexicans.  NOVEMBER 1NOVEMBER 2WHAT IS AN ALTAR OF THE DEAD?

Porque se celebra el día de los muertos en méxico

El Día de los Muertos (en español: Día de Muertos o Día de los Muertos)[2][3] es una festividad que se celebra tradicionalmente los días 1 y 2 de noviembre, aunque pueden incluirse otros días, como el 31 de octubre o el 6 de noviembre, dependiendo de la localidad.[4][5][6] Se originó en gran medida en México,[1] donde se observa mayoritariamente, pero también en otros lugares, especialmente por personas de herencia mexicana en otros lugares. Aunque se asocia con las celebraciones cristianas occidentales de la víspera de Todos los Santos, el Día de Todos los Santos y el Día de los Fieles Difuntos,[1] tiene un tono mucho menos solemne y se presenta como una fiesta de celebración alegre más que de luto[7] La fiesta de varios días implica que la familia y los amigos se reúnan para presentar sus respetos y recordar a los amigos y familiares que han fallecido. Estas celebraciones pueden tener un tono humorístico, ya que los celebrantes recuerdan eventos y anécdotas divertidas sobre los difuntos[8].

Durante el Día de Muertos, la tradición es construir altares privados («ofrendas») con las comidas y bebidas favoritas, así como fotos y recuerdos de los difuntos. La intención es fomentar las visitas de las almas, para que éstas escuchen las oraciones y las palabras de los vivos dirigidas a ellas. Estos altares suelen colocarse en casa o en espacios públicos como escuelas y bibliotecas, pero también es habitual que la gente vaya a los cementerios para colocar estos altares junto a las tumbas de los difuntos.

The main churches, Western Orthodox Christian Churches, Utrecht Union (Churches), Porvoo Communion, as well as the Anglican Communion and the Catholic Church, agreed to have the same calendar and days of religious celebrations and saints’ days to facilitate the attendance of their parishioners to their respective celebrations.

In the Second Book of Maccabees it is written: «John Maccabees commanded to offer sacrifices for the dead, that they might be freed from their sins» (2 Macc. 12:46). Similarly, in the early days of Christianity, the names of the departed brethren were written on the diptych, which is a set of two folding tables, in the form of a book, on which the early Church used to write down in two paired lists the names of the living and the dead to be prayed for.

In the 6th century the Benedictines had the custom of praying for the dead on the day after Pentecost. In the 5th century, there was a similar celebration on the Saturday before the sixtieth day before Easter Sunday (the second of the three Sundays counted before the first of Lent) or before Pentecost.

The Day of the Dead is a Mexican tradition celebrated on November 1 and 2 in which the dead are honored. It originated as a syncretism between Catholic celebrations (especially All Souls’ Day and All Saints’ Day) as well as the various customs of the indigenous people of Mexico.[1][2] For the ancient Mesoamericans, the Day of the Dead was a celebration of the dead, and it was celebrated on November 1 and 2, and was celebrated on November 1.

For the ancient Mesoamericans, death did not have the moral connotations of the Christian religion, in which the ideas of hell and paradise serve to punish or reward. On the contrary, they believed that the paths destined for the souls of the dead were determined by the type of death they had had, and not by their behavior in life.

This celebration began when the tree called xócotl was cut in the forest, from which the bark was removed and flowers were placed to decorate it. Everyone participated in the celebration, and offerings were made to the tree for twenty days.
