High Tatras, Poland | Jiri Novotny
The difference between learning a modern language and an ancient language is that in first year French you learn “Where is the bathroom?” and “How do I get to the train station?” and in first year Attic Greek or Latin you learn “I have judged you worthy of death” and “The tyrant had everyone in the city killed.”
Cempasuchil (Zempoalxóchitl in Nahuatl) or flor de muertos (flower of the dead) is an essential part of the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico. It is placed in our altares or ofrendas to guide the spirits of our deceased loved ones back home. It is a greeting, the kiss we will not be able to give them anymore…
