Day of the dead tribute

Allerede i torsdags var der en masse Dia de los Muertos aktiviteter, bl.a. på den Mexikanske ambassade hvor de havde lavet et alter. Her kunne man komme med et foto af en elsked afdød og hylde dem. I gamle dage lagde man mad, mønter, sprut og blomster og deres bedste egendele for at give dem en god rejse til det videre liv. Nu lægger man voks og ler afstøbninger af disse ting.

Already past thursday there were a lot of Dia de los Muertos events; one was on the Mexican embassy where they had made an alter for the dead. Here you could come by with a photo of a dead loved one and celebrate them. In the olden days people used to put food, coins, alcohol and flowers along with his or her most precious belongings in order to give them a good and safe trip to their new life. Nowadays people put clay versions of these things.
