Interesting fact: In 2008, the traditions of the Day of the Dead were inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
Here are a few Day of the Dead sentiments from South of the Border:
Quien con la esperanza vive, alegre muere. (He who lives with hope, dies happy.)
Hay más tiempo que vida. (There is more time than life.)
A mí la muerte me pela los dientes. (Death can't do anything to me.")
