Below this tower roamed masses of the walking live celebrating a 3,000 year old ritual called Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. I believe the Aztecs started the practice to honor their deceased relatives. Today, people don wooden skull masks called calacas and dance in honor of their dead. Altars are made, sugar skulls, made with the names of the dead person on the forehead, are eaten by a relative or friend. Faces are painted in various skull fashion and photographers show up in droves.
