Pan de Muerto is a sweet soft bread shaped like a bun, and often decorated with bone-like pieces. It is traditionally baked in Mexico during the weeks leading up to the “Day of the Death”, which is celebrated on November 2. In some regions it is eaten for months before its official celebration. As part of the celebration, loved ones eat Pan de Muerto as well as their relative’s favorite foods. The bones represent the lost ones and there is normally a baked tear-drop on the bread to represent sorrow. The bones are represented in a circle to portray the circle of life.
When – Depending on Mexican regions, you can eat this bread as part of the celebration for the “Day of the Death”, on November 2, or even months before the official celebration.
How – More traditionally, you eat it at the gravesite or altar of the deceased, with the dead person’s picture and offerings of flowers, fruits, sugar skulls and other food. It is said that like this the deceased will have a happy transition to the other life.
