In this 2006 file photo, a man stands in front of an art piece of painted skulls in Mexico City’s Zocalo plaza during Day of the Dead festivities. Day of the Dead, a colorfully macabre celebration harkening back to the Aztecs, is observed on the Catholic All Saints’ Day. “El Dia de Los Muertos” is when families take picnics to the cemeteries to decorate the graves of departed relatives with marigolds, candles and sugar skulls.
