At 3pm on November 1st, the bells of Preciosa Sangre de Cristo start ringing and continue all through the night to help disfuntos (deceased souls) find their way home. The roots of Dia de los Muertos run deep with the Zacateco people, whose customs involving death predate the arrival of the Spanish. At the end of every October, Zacateco peoples celebrate transitory return to Earth of deceased relatives by building altars and decorating gravesites with marigold flowers. Pictured here is the famed market of Teotitlan del Valle, where vendors gather for a large outdoor market in preparation for November 1st.
