Why is day of the dead more important in southern Mexico than in northern Mexico?

Because it is a mix of ancient Native American and Spanish traditions; northern Mexico was almost unpopulated and no traditions like this were known at the time, as it was inhabited by semi-nomadic groups without extensive cultural traditions. Before Spanish conquistadors conquered Mexico in the 16th century, a kind of Day of the Dead was celebrated by Aztec and Mayan societies, celebrating the children and the lives of people who had passed away. When Spain conquered Mexico in 1521, they merged their own All Souls Day with the already existing tradition, thus becoming Day of the Dead.
