1. The word 'panteones' means the cemetery. It serves as the central place for the Day of the Dead celebration. It operates as a liminal space where the living and the dead come together and where the dead are both mourned and celebrated.

2. The sorts of things you
might find in the 'mercado' from the picturesare:
flowers
copal
cut-out paper wall
materials for construction

3. People set up altars for the dead.
