Remember Me: Experiencing Mexican Festivals

A fun-filled day celebrating Mexican culture and family bonds!

When you mention October 31st, it's “Halloween,” but from November 1st to 2nd, in the central to southern regions of Mexico, there's a festival called “Día de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) celebrated.

The streets are adorned with marigold orange, colorful skulls are displayed everywhere, people paint their faces and create cute skull-like makeup. Currently, in the capital city, Mexico City, there's even a famous parade.

Unlike Halloween, Mexico's “Day of the Dead” festival is an entirely different experience. Furthermore, this festival isn't meant to induce fear; it's actually a lot of fun.

If you want to experience the atmosphere of “Día de los Muertos,” be sure to visit on November 5th and enjoy a variety of programs such as workshops, experiences, food trucks, panel exhibitions, and more.

A “piñata” is a paper-made figure filled with candies or toys, commonly played with by children in South American countries, including Mexico, during parties and birthdays.

Why not join in the fun of this game enjoyed by South American children in Kobe? There are various ways to make them. If you want to learn how to make one, how about getting instructions from a Mexican teacher? You can take home a small-sized “piñata” that you make yourself and enjoy it with your family.
