They fused Catholicism with ancient native mexican death worship

i think argentinians worship death too

>>15337226
This, and it wasn't much of a merger, as the two were pretty much the same.

Okay this whole thread kind of pisses me off because I actually am Mexican and this whole all mexicans worship death is kinda crap. It seriously aint even about that at all, santa murete(saint death) is more or less a patron saint of the lost(spiritually not physically), but is also the chosen patron saint of the mexican criminal underworld like narcos, coytes, and cartel men. Just sort of like a rebel symbol that the criminal underworld beleives protects them from law enforcement.

Tl;dr: you are all dumb fucks.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Muerte

>Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte or, colloquially, Santa Muerte (Spanish for Our Lady of the Holy Death), is a female folk saint venerated primarily in Mexico and the Southwestern United States. A personification of death, she is associated with healing, protection, and safe delivery to the afterlife by her devotees

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Pascualito

>San Pascualito (also known as San Pascualito Muerte and El Rey San Pascual) is a folk saint associated with Saint Paschal Baylon and venerated in Guatemala and the Mexican state of Chiapas. He is called "King of the Graveyard."[1] His veneration is associated with the curing of disease, and is related to the Latin American cult of death. The tradition may be related to the worship of a pre-Columbian death god.[2] San Pascualito is represented as a skeleton, sometimes caped or wearing a crown. The veneration of San Pascualito is not approved by the Roman Catholic Church.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxim%C3%B3n

>The legend has it that one day while the village men were off working in the fields, Maximón slept with all of their wives. When they returned, they became so enraged they cut off his arms and legs (this is why most effigies of Maximón are short, often without arms). Following this, he somehow became a god, or perhaps prior to this he had been possessed by the god. Later, with the introduction of Christianity, Maximón's effigy was replaced by one of Judas Iscariot in Holy Week carnival rituals

2 things wrong dipshit, its not a week, and its not a worship of death itself. Its a time to honor our dead and fallen and put a physical face on the end of the journey that is life. Dieing is not something seen as awful culturally as it is here. People honor their dead and move on. Mexicans dont worship death itself as an independent entity. How the fuck are you going to try and tell me about my own culture i grew up in? Thats what i really cant fucking stand about white people, you guys read a couple things on the internet or watch an hour long documentary on NGC then you feel like you can lecture people on what they beleive and practice. Fuck you dude.

many third world and emerging countries have been labeled as morbid. i think its because of a closeness to one's dead or just exposure to death whether from illness or violence as a daily thing.

I believe it's not like they "worship death so much", but possibly because they culturally see death in a different way than other countries do.

India has a different way of seeing death too.
Hell, even among European culture there's a lot of variation.

Indeed, mostly in the northern areas do. San La Muerte, macumba, but the main difference: death cult in Mexico has a positive light on it whereas in Argentina it is thought to be practised by people with very bad intentions.
Almost everyone I know try to change topics or disregards what is related to it.

The big Mexican thing is to celebrate death because it's your family member moving on to a better place and all that.
But the mex mafia and cartel cats like it because it's the whole tough shit "we kil u" thing. Think of Mara Salvatrucha and their love of the number 13.

They are farmers.
And afraid of everything. Thus they appease the certain things in life.


Like death, taxes, and drugs.

The perfectly preserved corpses of babies and adults were brashly displayed amid neon lights, fake cobwebs, and other cheap Halloween-esque adornments. Confronted with this seeming lack of respect for the dead and vulgarity of the displays, I explained to my shocked companion that Mexicans have a peculiarly different relationship with death to other cultures. As the Nobel prize-winning Mexican writer Octavio Paz explained in his seminal work Labyrinth of Solitude:

"The Mexican ... is familiar with death, jokes about it, caresses it, sleeps with it, celebrates it. True, there is as much fear in his attitude as in that of others, but at least death is not hidden away: he looks at it face to face, with impatience, disdain or irony."

The origins of the Day of the Dead rest in the 16th-century fusion of the Aztecs' belief in death as merely one part in the wider cycle of existence, their ritual venerations and offerings to the goddess Mictecacihuatl ("Lady of the Dead") for deceased children and adults, and the conquering Spaniards' desire to accommodate these festivities within the Catholic celebrations of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day. While contemporary observance of the Day of the Dead does include masses and prayers to saints and the dead, it is dominated by carnivalesque rituals to a far greater extent that the orthodox Catholic celebrations found in western Europe.

The period is specifically a joyous, ritualistically elaborate celebration of life, rather than a sober mourning of its passing.
