A follower of La Santa Muerte (The Saint of Death), a cult figure often depicted as a skeletal grim reaper, drinks an alcoholic beverage (C) while another follower holds a statue of the saint en route to the saint's altar at Tepito neighborhood in Mexico City January 1, 2014. Followers gather at altars at the start of a new year to leave offerings of apples, flowers, cigarettes, coloured candles and tequila to thank the saint for favours that have been granted or to ask for new ones in the new year.
