Dia De Los Muertos
On Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), the dead are awakened to become a vibrant part of the community. Family celebrate their legacies with objects and activities they enjoyed in life like food, drink and music. What better way to celebrate than with Bloody Maria!
During Dia de los Muertos beautiful altars (ofrendas) are made in the home. They are decorated with candles, buckets of flowers (wild marigolds called cempasuchil & bright red cock's combs) mounds of fruit, peanuts, plates of turkey mole, stacks of tortillas and big Day of the Dead breads called pan de muerto. If you're celebrating in your own home, make sure your altar has lots of food, Micheladas, Bloody Marias and water for weary traveling spirits.
Celebrate with your Family by creating an Ofrenda for your loved ones that have passed, sharing memories of the dearly departed.
