Día de los Inocentes is a two day festival on November the 1st and November the 2nd which you have to witness at least once in your lifetime. The festival is massive and almost everyone is involved. If you want to get a sense of the true character of the Mexicano this is it.
As a gringo (outsider) you will be welcomed into the hearts of our people. It’s always funny how it’s portrayed outside in the media, but when you are grown into this you will know differently.
It’s festival about respect. Respect to your lost loved ones, respect to past and to the present. You will understand the meaning of life, your meaning of life. The true nature of being alive and being grateful for it. For me, this festival is my religion as for me this is something holy.
