Dia de los Muertos 2010

This Monday and Tuesday we celebrated the “Day of the dead” in Mexico. (All Saints Day)

This celebration goes back to the Aztecs – a day dedicated to the dead. A day where people go to the cemetery and celebrated their dead.

Susi and Oli are building up an altar at home since 10 years.

On the 01. and 02. during the night we set together and remembered passed away family members and friends.
