  1. I got 70%!! This is one of the celebrations that drew me to the Mexican culture. I have since made it part of my life and it is very meaningful to me. Great little quiz and I’m pretty impressed with myself!

  3. I am sure you know that “Catrina” is not a name, it means “fancy or elegant” as Guadalupe Posadas would dress his skeletons in the best of outfits and call them “Catrines y Catrinas” only the female name survived though.
