DIAS DE LOS MUERTOS??
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), is a Mexican tradition dating back more than 3,000 years to the time of the Aztecs. Taking place each year from October 31st through November 2nd, the annual celebration provides an opportunity to pray for and remember friends and family members who have passed. It is believed that loved ones are reunited with families on this special day. The tradition includes vibrant flower-filled altars, offerings that our loved ones might miss in the afterlife, including favorite foods and beverages. A day of family reunion and celebration, Dia de los Muertos becomes an acknowledgement of that which is an inevitable part of life.
All proceeds are used to generate scholarships for higher education in our local community.
