The pan de muerto is a special kind of bread made in Mexico. It is not a bread for daily consumption (although it is prepared from July), since it is closely associated with the celebration of Day of the Dead, a celebration that can last from a day to a week during the month of November, depending on the region. The spread of the pan de muerto is especially concentrated in the center and south of the country, where the Day of the Dead is celebrated with greater intensity.
