MEXICO CITY, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- The streets of Mexico City are packed with vendors peddling a variety of Halloween costumes which are juxtaposed with Day of the Dead decorations. To the residents of the city's southern Mixcoac neighborhood, this is something they have started to get familiar with over the past decade.

"Since the 1980s Marlon Mack Jersey , Halloween's influence in Mexico has been gradually increasing," said Josefina Garcia, the director of Collections and Educational Services at the Dolores Olmedo Museum in Mexico City.

"It is now quite common to see people including witches, pumpkins and ghosts in their Day of the Dead altars," Garcia said.

It is also now commonplace to hear children ask for candies ("trick or treat") during Day of the Dead festivities while they dress up in Halloween costumes, the director added.

While noting that the two cultures have merged to a certain extent in recent decades Tarell Basham Jersey , Garcia said she believed that the traditional festival Day of the Dead will not die out.

"Mexico's education system puts a lot of emphasis and time into teaching young people about the traditions and significance of the Day of the Dead traditions. Almost all Mexicans know that witches and pumpkins have nothing to do with Day of the Dead," Garcia told Xinhua.

Furthermore, the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) "protected" the Mexican tradition in 2008 by registering Day of the Dead on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The UNESCO declaration aims to preserve the celebration from outside influences such as Halloween and mass tourism.

Garcia attributed Halloween's infiltration in the Latin American country to many factors including Mexico's proximity to the U.S. where the scary holiday is extremely popular in the film industry, online and with retailers.

For all the infusion of the two festivals, Day of the Dead and Halloween are quite different apart from their proximity on the calendar Quincy Wilson Jersey , according to the director.

Halloween originated in pagan and Celtic traditions from Ireland and Scotland about 2,000 years ago. The Celts believed the door to the underworld opene.
