These flowers are planted this time of year in El Comején, Masaya because of their traditional use in Nicaragua on All Saint’s Day. They are cut and bound and sold to families who are looking for flowers to decorate the tombs of their loved ones.  Wikipedia says the following:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celosia_cristata

Estas flores se siembran en esta época en El Comején, Masaya debido a su uso típico en Nicaragua para el Día de los Muertos. Se cortan y se juntan y luego son vendidas a familias quienes las buscan para decorar las tumbas de sus seres queridos.
