死亡之日,或者说ElDiadeLosMuertos——真是一个快乐的人!!

死亡之日。

这一天发生在每年11月2日,我很幸运能在拉巴斯看到一个,在里面玻利维亚资本,回到2007年。事实上,I accidentally stumbled into that year's死亡日,as I was walking around the steep streets of the highest capital city in the world,我想知道为什么拉巴斯公墓的人很多。

我问一个西班牙人,and he said to me ‘esEl Dia de Los Muertos'它是死亡日.

Since my Spanish wasn't that good at that point in time,我以为他是说“今天每个人都死了”。据我所知,I didn't think the Apocalypse was occurring.  Then I realised there was loads of flower stalls and people buying flowers and other momentos and trinkets,他说这是一年一度的万灵节,或是死亡之日。

When some dies in Latin America,它们通常以传统的西方方式埋葬,或者放在地窖里。10年内,然后尸体被翻新和火化。家人买或租了一个有玻璃窗的“空间”,把骨灰放在那里。亲戚们可以把鲜花和其他重要物品放在玻璃框后面,直到永远。

看看我在拉巴斯公墓拍的这张照片,上面显示了这些“空间”。它就像是一座高层公寓,供火葬者使用。

死亡之日

The whole place was packed with people for the entire day.  Relatives had set up barbeques next to their loved ones' crypts,墓石或“空间”,and the whole family sat around and had lunch with their ancestors.  Those who had a musical inclination had brought in their guitars to sing the favourite songs of their deceased relatives.

然而,这些行为没有任何病态。亚博app官方下载死亡日更像是墓地里的一个大型聚会,rather than anything sad.  It was a celebration of a person's life,都做得很体面。

在西方文化中,death sometimes is viewed as a taboo subject.  No one seems to be that comfortable talking 亚博app官方下载about it,even though death is pretty much the only guarantee related to life.

但在世界其他地方,这不是禁忌话题。事实上,恰恰相反。死亡是公开庆祝的。

当我穿过拉巴斯公墓时,我心里想——这是一个庆祝某人一生的好方法!!

精彩的照片!Living in Los Angeles before I was familiar with the Day of the Dead holiday,as 亚博app官方下载about half to population of the city celebrated it one way or another,but I myself never took part.Really cool to see (and read) 亚博app官方下载about a place where it is taken quite seriously.

I agree with you,我们在西方似乎把很多注意力放在了对死亡的恐惧上。我访问的所有国家,似乎最喜欢基夫的人并不是过于担心死亡的概念。亚博app官方下载

我们对死亡的看法肯定有偏差。尽管很悲伤,their life should be celebrated.
