Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead)


Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos) is an important tradition that takes place on the first two days of November.  This tradition honors the spirits of departed loved ones by celebrating their life.
To welcome our loved ones, families build altars in their honor. These altars are decorated with yellow marigold flowers (flor de cempasuchil), photos of the departed, and the favorite foods and drinks of the one being honored. The offerings are believed to encourage visits from the land of the dead.


Our dead are never dead to us until we have forgotten them. -George Eliot
