Dia de los Muertos: November 1, 2019 2-4pm SLT

Post by Kyoko »

Come one! Come all :)

You are invited to the CDS celebration of Dia de los Muertos.

Friday, November 1 from 2-4pm slt.
Calli is DJing for us.

For some background take a look at this link:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_of_the_Dead

“ On October 31, All Hallows Eve, the children make a children's altar to invite the angelitos (spirits of dead children) to come back for a visit. November 1 is All Saints Day, and the adult spirits will come to visit. November 2 is All Souls Day, when families go to the cemetery to decorate the graves and tombs of their relatives. The three-day fiesta is filled with marigolds, the flowers of the dead; muertos (the bread of the dead); sugar skulls; cardboard skeletons; tissue paper decorations; fruit and nuts; incense, and other traditional foods and decorations. ”
