Re: “Bread of the Dead

You should have mentioned that there is a big "breaking of bread" get-together where family and friends are invited to share a "pan de muerto". During this simple evening, the bread is cut into even portions for all the guests and then served with coffee, hot chocolate or "atole" (a hot pudding-like drink). The guest(s) who gets the piece with the small hidden toy (ususally a baby that represents Baby Jesus) will have to host another get-together on February 2nd of the following year (El Dia de la Candelaria).
