10 Lively Coco Gifts
The movie Coco is inspired by the Day of the Dead (a multi-day Mexican holiday celebrated by people of Mexican heritage which focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died and help support their spiritual journey).
The symbolism includes:
- Sugar skulls – Along with toys, they are left on the altars for children who have passed. The skull is used not as morbid symbol but rather as a whimsical reminder of the cyclicality of life, which is why they are brightly decorated.
- Marigolds – A specific type of marigold flower, native to Mexico, is often placed ofrendas (collection of objects placed on a ritual altar) and around graves. With their strong scent and vibrant color the petals are used to make a path that leads the spirits from the cemetery to their families’ homes.
- Monarch butterflies – They play a role in because they are believed to hold the spirits of the departed. This belief stems from the fact that the first monarchs arrive in Mexico for the winter each fall on Nov. 1, which coincides with Día de los Muertos.
- Miguel, a 12-year-old aspiring musician.
- Coco, Miguel’s elderly grandmother, who he lives with.
- Héctor, a charming trickster in the Land of the Dead who enlists Miguel to help him visit the Land of the Living, and is later revealed to be Miguel’s great-great-grandfather.
- Ernesto de la Cruz, the most famous musician in the history of Mexico and Miguel’s idol. Revered by fans worldwide until his untimely death, the charming and charismatic musician is even more beloved in the Land of the Dead.
- Dante, the film’s supporting character, a Xoloitzcuintle (aka Xolo, Mexican hairless dog, or hairless dog).
