The Day of The Dead or Dia de Los Muertos is an ancient Mexican tradition where people get together to pray and remember loved ones that passed. Even though this three day celebration ( October 31, November 1 & November 2) coincides with Halloween and its name may suggest otherwise, there is nothing grim or spooky about this festivity.
Every year more people from around the world are adopting the tradition and we think it's a wonderful idea. So how does one celebrate? You get a picture of a deceased loved one and surround it with marigold flowers, candles, sugar skulls, decorations and some of the person's favorite foods & beverages. If you have a determined religious denomination you can say a prayer and incorporate religious symbols like crosses and rosaries. You can also play the person's favorite tunes or movies.
To honor this spiritual tradition, we put together some of our favorite decorations, DIY projects and foods. If you Pinterest you can check out this list on our pinterest page Awe Events Atx.
