What is Day of the Dead?

What is Day of the Dead?”

Amezcua said she is glad the holiday has become more popular, but she said she is anxious that it could be misappropriated when people paint their faces as the skull for Halloween.

Primarily celebrated in Mexico - and emphasized in the states of Michoacán, Jalisco, and Oaxaca - the Día de los Muertos includes families gathering, decorating altars at home and in cemeteries, leaving ofrendas (or offerings), and partaking in festivities to honor loved ones.

To help Southside plan for Dia de los Muertos, Pruneda provided material to the manager from previous lectures he had done, he said. Delgado mentioned there is no wrong or right way to make an altar.

Well, no. It's not.

For Carol Sanchez Hatch, an artist from San Antonio believes Dia de Los Muertos is a great way to honor those who have passed.

"The first chapter of grieving is really recognizing that someone is gone from this world, and your relationship with them is changing" rather than ending, says Tracee Dunblazier, a spiritual empath and grief counselor based in Los Angeles.

When Campo approached MACA to sponsor the Dia de Muertos festival in Marion, it was a flawless opportunity multicultural arts in the area, according to a news release.

Southside Cafe will host a Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, celebration with traditional Mexican cuisine, while displaying some of the holiday's customs and typical decorations. It is said that the dead are "awakened from their eternal sleep" to take part in the celebrations.

"At the altar, we offer them their favorite drinks, food and we lay out important items, pictures and mementos that represent them", said Murillo. The holiday tradition on All Saints Day invokes a mix of pre-Columbian Aztec rituals, plus Christian traditions, said Benjamin Reed, a Jerome resident and Spanish-language radio station on-air personality. Again, I'm not the definitive guy to ask, but I'd think it has to do with how much respect and actual appreciation is shown.

November 1 is dedicated to the angelitos, little angels, children who have died.

The club also invited members of the COC community to place photos of their loved ones who passed away. "We wanted people off the streets to just contribute to this". "Creating an altar, it creates something that when the spirit comes back to visit on that day they see that they are being remembered", he said, "It makes them feel as though they are still a part of the family". At the end of the day", she adds, "we are all human beings.

The Dia De Los Muertos celebration will begin at 6pm Saturday, November 4 at the Sofia Quintero Art and Cultural Center at 1225 Broadway. Also, buying Dia de Muertos items actually made by people from the cultures where the traditions originate is a whole lot cooler (and respectful) than stocking up on plastic sugar skulls that are made in China and sold at Walgreens.
