To Adrian the altar is the sacred place that we decide on to honor our beloved people who passed away. The altar is the combination of our Christian faith and Prehispanic traditions where we place the offerings for our deceased. Besides the favorite requests of the deceased, the altar must have the primary items which are: bread, water, candles and cempasúchil flowers –the traditional yellow flower for the death. The altar also is ornamented with sacred images, colorful papel picado known as cut paper and incense.
