HANAL PIXAN the Maya have dinner with the dead
I've been photographing the Maya village of Saban (Quintana Roo) for 25 years. One of their most important celebrations takes place in the first week of November. When the whole of Mexico is celebrating the Days of the Dead, the Mayas celebrate Hanal Pixan. They clean their houses and yards and prepare a great dinner when their ancestors and recently deceased arise from their graves to have dinner with the living Mayas.
