This town just south of the city of Oaxaca is a place of celebrations, particularly during the run-up to Dia de los Muertos, when locals and visitors pack Xoxocotlan’s cemeteries. Oaxacans gather around relatives’ graves here, drinking mezcal, singing, praying and, occasionally, cooking. The town also is known for its Easter and Lent celebrations, including playful Tuesday festivities called Martes de Brujas.
