Researching Mexican cultural traditions for the dead.  I’m specifically looking at how Mexicans (hispanics, mexican-americans) view cremation.  There are mixed views on it.  Cremation, however, is becoming more acceptable.

“According to beliefs in this culture, the dead return on certain days of the year and are remembered through special events. The body must be buried for this to occur as cremation is not a common option in the Hispanic culture.”
