Join us in honoring the Spirit of Dia de los Muertos!
“Dia de´los Muertos,” or “Day of the Dead,” is a Mexican national holiday commemorating relatives and friends who have left us behind through death.
We create offrendas (alters) displaying pictures of dear ones who have passed, along with things they enjoyed in life.
It’s a way to lovingly remember those who meant so much to us in life, and to feel close to them in Spirit. It is a time of true connection between the living world and the Spirit world.
It is our cultural way to celebrate eternal life!
Adrian and Chris Lizarraga
