Here, there is an article about how the Mexicans celebrate it. As you can see, - S for He/ She/ It is in BOLD and CAPITAL letters.


It is the end of October, and Mexico prepareS to celebrate the day of the Dead on November 1st. There are street markets and shops filled with symbols of death before the festival beginS.

It is the day when dead spirits return (go back) to the land of the living, but there’s nothing sad about this festival. It simple reflectS the Indian belief that death is a natural part of life.

November 1st is known as the feast of All Saints and All Souls. The festival usually involveS (is about) two days of celebration on October 31st and November 1st. The Indian festival became (be – come in past) a Catholic one when the Spanish brought (bring or take –took) in past their religión to Mexico.

Every person prepareS for the dead their favourite food and drink, cigarettes, sweets and fruit. People bake (cook) a special kind (type) of bread known as “pan de muertos” or “bread of the dead”. Nowadays (today), you can buy “pan de muertos” in markets. A bowl of water and a cloth is put on the table so that the spirits can wash their hands, and sometimes a favourite possession of the dead person is left (put there).

After the festival, the community arrangeS the food around a wooden frame decorated with coloured papers, flowers and fruit.

The island of Janitzio is famous for its Day of the Dead celebrations, and it is a very important tourist attraction. The lake (water around the island) which surroundS Janitzio is full of torches. These show the route of the lanchas (small boats) which carry the familiEs to the island. They go with their gifts (presents or things to give away) to the cemetery where they are all night long. Through (during) the night, attracted by the light of candles and perfume of incense and flowers, the souls return once to their families.

Go away!
