Large colourful kites greet back the dead in Guatemala

Giant kites, with intricate patterns and brilliant colours, are the link between the faithful in Guatemala and the sprits of their ancestors. One day before the Day of the Dead is completed, Guatemalans brought these kites to the cemeteries to visit their loved ones. On this day when the worlds between the living and the dead come together, Guatemalans believe the kites are lead by the wind and guided by spirits until exactly four o’clock in the afternoon. That’s when the spirits come down to join their families.Messages are written on the kites – ranging from world peace, politics, religion or culture – and are often inspired by current events. This vibrant tradition dates back more than a century.
