What is Día de Los Muertos?
Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos) is a two day holiday that reunites the living and dead. Families create ofrendas (Offerings) to honor their departed family members that have passed. These altars are decorated with bright yellow marigold flowers, photos of the departed, and the favorite foods and drinks of the one being honored. The offerings are believed to encourage visits from the land of the dead as the departed souls hear their prayers, smell their foods and join in the celebrations! Day of the Dead is a rare holiday for celebrating death and life. It is unlike any holiday where mourning is exchanged for celebration.
Contribute to our Community Altar in Store!
Every year we open up our front display for the community to honor their loved ones that have since passed. We encourage everyone to bring a photograph of memory of their loved one to place on the altar to keep their memory alive.
