In the town of Pomuch, every November 2 (the well-known Mexican Day of the Dead), many citizens of the village go the cemetery to make the ritual of the "bone washing", exhuming the skeletons of their deceased loved ones after they have been buried for three years, and they clean the bones. Then, the skulls of fathers, brothers or uncles are exhibited among flowers and candles in open wooden boxes, and among laughs and anecdotes of the deceased. The bones are leaved permanently in the graveyard, allowing them to decompose and dry out in an easier manner. This ritual is apparently a custom from the ancient Mayan civilization typical of the area.
