Día de Los Muertos ~ Day of the Dead
Saturday, October 26, 2019
Sean Wells will lead a colorful and fun filled discussion on Día de los Muertos ~ Day of the Dead. This Mexican holiday is celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere along the Borderlands. The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and helping support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awake and celebrate with them.
