THE HISTORY OF DIA DE LOS MUERTOS

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS is a festive Mexican holiday where family and friends come together in fellowship to remember and celebrate the lives of their passed loved ones, by building altars, holding candlelight vigils, while partaking in the favorite music, foods, drinks,  and items of the deceased.

Traditionally, this holiday celebrates the memory of children on November 1st and adults on November 2nd. 


Living relatives and friends gather in the streets of the communities, the homes of loved ones, and the cemeteries where their loved ones have been laid to rest.

Our mission is to share the true meaning and tradition of the holiday with all cultures since, no matter our differences or ethnic backgrounds, each and every one of us have loved ones to remember and honor. In death, we are all the same, and we wish to share this custom with the metropolitan area.
