I am from Mexico City ansdscored 40%! 😦 It was fun though! And educational. 😉
I think most foreigners living in London would know more about it than me. Generally works that way 🙂
I got them all correct, surprisingly no.6 recorded incorrectly due to my thick thumb! Love it, great quiz, fun
WOW well done you and the thick thumb!! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!
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!
Great score!! Good for you and I;m glad that you too love Day of the Dead!

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.
Yes, but I feel like that has become her ‘name’ now, but you are very correct. 🙂
