Cultura de Morelos

"Carnaval" is celebrated prior to the Catholic Holy Days celebrations. One of the most popular carnivals takes place in Tepoztlán. There, young and old enjoy watching musical comparsas compete and dress up in long gowns, masks and big sombreros to dance to the catchy tune of “ brinco del chinelo”. Chinelos are dancers that are recognized for their great skills and endurance to make jumps and complicated leaps during the parade through the city. Visitors will find exhibitions of the region’s traditional food, drinks ,and its beautiful arts and crafts . The Reto del Tepozteco celebrates the indigenous symbolism and blends it to the new catholic faith. Every year, the 8th of September in Tepoztlan, Morelia, the community participates in a procession to the Tepozteco pyramid, to place religious offerings and food to honor the conversion of the Tepoztécatl king to the new catholic religion. The celebration of the Dia de Muertos or Day of the Dead is another example of the tradition and faith of the people of Morelos. In Ocotepec, families build altars in their homes to remember their dead and make special new offerings for those that died the past year. In the cemetery, graves are decorated with crosses , flowers or different objects made of colorful cempasúchil or marigold flowers. The best dried meat of the country is made in Yecapixtla; it can be served with delicious acoyote beans and for dessert nieve “snow” from Cuernavaca or Tepoztlán with its great variety of original flavors: avocado, rice pudding, elote or rompope as well as the more traditional fruit, chocolate and vanilla flavors, But perhaps the markets full of color, fragrances and scents, variety of products, flowers, and traditional dishes prepared on the spot are the best part of Morelos culture.
