Saints' Day, when the souls of the children arrive and on November 2, the Day of the
Dead, is when the adults arrive.
The most representative element of the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico are the altars
with their offerings, a representation of our vision about death, full of allegories and
meanings.
In the places where the tradition is more rooted, the altars begin to take shape on October
28 and reach their maximum splendor on November 2. It is common for the first day to
light a candle and place a white flower; the next day another candle is added and a glass
of water is offered. For day 30, a new candle is lit, another glass of water is placed and a
white bread is placed; the next day the seasonal fruit is placed (tangerine, guava, orange,
apple, tejocote). For the first of November, the sweet food, the chocolate, the pumpkin in
tacha, and the flowers are placed. On the main day, the deceased's favorite food, tequila,
mezcal and beer are placed. The element that is not missing in any of these days is the

TESLA ELECTRIC CAR


An electric car is a vehicle driven by one or more electric motors that uses
electrical energy stored in rechargeable batteries and transforms it into kinetics.
Unlike internal combustion vehicles, which operate by burning fuel, an electric car
gets traction from electric motors. This energy is stored in rechargeable systems,
batteries, which then consume the energy stored during its displacement. The
motor of an electric car can be either alternating current or direct current.
The most advanced technology in electric vehicles today is that of lithium-ion
batteries.
