La Catrina is often referred to as Mexico’s Grand Dame of Death. She is the protector over the bones of the dead. La Catrina today is portrayed in all mediums and forms from food, crafts, art, or fashion. She has become the mascot for El Dia De Los Muertos and presides over it. Although for the many Mexicans who still celebrate El Dia De Los Muertos in its traditional form, La catrina represents the honoring of passed loved ones. El Dia De Los Muertos is a festival that lasts two days every year. On November 1st and 2nd, it is believed that departed loved ones come back and visit those still living. In preparation of their arrival, many prepare altars to honor them and welcome them home.
