The Embassy of Mexico is collaborating with the Association of Mexicans in Singapore and Ms Angelina Lourdes, a Singaporean who fell in love with Mexican culture, to organise the celebration of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) in Singapore.

The event is now in its third year and will feature a series of cultural activities such as music/dance performances and workshops for children and adults. Local Mexican restaurants will also be participating by offering guests delicious Mexican dishes and drinks. This year, Disney has come on board for the initiative and will be setting up an augmented reality and photo-taking booth to promote its latest film “Coco”, whose theme revolves around the tradition of Día de Muertos.

Singapore Press Club members are invited to attend the celebration together with their family and friends.

Please refer below for the details of the event.

About Día de Muertos

Día de Muertos, which takes place on 1 and 2 November every year, is a traditional Mexican holiday that marks the connection between life and death. It is a time to celebrate family, friends and ancestors that are no longer with us. Like any other celebration, it is filled with music, food and festivities.

The message of the Día de Muertos holiday is to love your life because nothing is permanent. The mood is joyful. Families pray, tell stories about the departed and sing during these days.

There is no pain in this celebration and it does not have morbid or spooky connotations, even though the holiday involves setting up altars, visiting cemeteries and showing artistic representations of skeletons and skulls. It is a unique Mexican tradition that is not related to Halloween.

This celebration is one of the most relevant representations of Mexico’s living heritage. In recognition of the strong cultural significance of Día de Muertos, the holiday was inscribed to UNESCO’s List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2008.
