Cancun plays host to a number of festivals throughout the year. Perhaps one of the most intriguing is the Day of the Dead or Dia de Muertos which takes place in late-October to early-November. This festival is held throughout Mexico and is a day when the living hold a feast and celebrations to honour the memory of their dead relatives. Street parades are held and the cemeteries and street shrines are decorated. Mariachi music fills the air, shop windows are decorated and there are parties everywhere. It may sound gruesome, but in Mexico the celebrations have attained the status of a national holiday, and it is a time of celebration, not mourning. The festival can be traced back to the indigenous peoples of Mexico. A common symbol of the Day of the Dead is the skull. Celebrants will wear skull masks and special foods such as sugar or chocolate skulls are sold as well as costumed figures with skeleton faces. There are regional variations in the celebrations and, in Cancun, traditional Mexican ceremonies are influenced by ancient Mayan customs to create Hanal Pixan or the Mayan ritual of the dead. The Hanal Pixan ceremony is held in the ruins of El Rey, an ancient Mayan city, approximately 30 minutes from Cancun.
