Mexican farmers cut cempasuchil flowers ahead of Day of the Dead

Farmers from the Atlixco region in central Mexico cut cempasuchil flowers, which are used to adorn altars and tombs on the “Day of the Dead” celebrations on November 1 and 2. According to the tradition, trails of cempasuchil flowers serve as a guide for the spirits to reach the altar.
