Pictured is an ofrenda typical of people from Carapan. Men make the archway, and women decorate it with Cempasúchil, the Mexican marigold. The scent and vivid color of this flower is said to help lure the dead closer to their families. You’ll can also see the corpse-shaped Pan de Muerto (“Bread of the Dead”) used to feed the spirits. Candles and incense are also key in creating the right atmosphere for the return of the dead.
