A dedication to the deceased
Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos) is a two day holiday
that reunites the living and dead. Families create ofrendas (Offerings) to
honor their departed family members that have passed. These altars are
decorated with bright yellow marigold flowers, 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 as the departed souls hear their
prayers, smell their foods and join in the celebrations!
Day of the Dead is a rare holiday for celebrating death and
life. It is unlike any holiday where mourning is exchanged for celebration.
