A girl carries a figurine of La Santa Muerte (The Saint of Death), a cult figure often depicted as a skeletal grim reaper, as a man pours an alcoholic beverage over it at the saint's altar in Tepito neighborhood, 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.
