Each element of the offerings of Day of the Dead has a “feeling,” following the customs and traditions of ancestors of those who honor their dearly beloveds. In private homes, they are often a combination of photographs of the loved one, and things – often vices like smoking or drinking or gambling – that he or she truly enjoyed while alive.

The marigold, or the “flower of twenty petals", with its characteristic bright yellow color, is the main ingredient of offerings of Day of the Dead in Patzcuaro, and it is also the most representative element of this important holiday. The marigold can be seen in profusion in many ofrendas and virtually every cemetery in the región.
