Wednesday, November 1
Day of the Dead (el Dia de Muertos) is a Mexican tradition to honor friends and families who have passed away. This is not a solemn holiday but a festive one to remember loved ones. The Library will set up an altar (ofrenda) with food, marigolds, sugar skulls and incense (not burning). Everyone is welcome to place a photo of a loved one who has passed away this year on the ofrenda to remember them and celebrate their life.
The ofrenda will be set up on November 1st.
On Friday, we will join together for festivities. There will be crafts, face painting, food and dancing.
