Mixquic, whose name means “place of those who take care of water,” comes to life during the Day of the Dead with the magical “Alumbrada.” In this tradition, Mexicans decorate homes and graves with flowers and candles, creating a dazzling nighttime show of lights and colours. But not everything is solemnity. The festival is enlivened by skull competitions and widows’ mischief, which entertain the 100,000 visitors who attend every year.
