Day of the Dead Fiesta
28 October, 2016 @ 10:00 pm - 29 October, 2016 @ 5:00 am
Every year on the 2nd November, Mexico celebrates the Day of The Dead, a celebration that is also celebrated in Latin America and other cultures and that recently has spread to the whole World.
This holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.
The Mexican Day of the Dead celebration is similar to other culture’s observances of a time to honor the dead. The Spanish tradition included festivals and parades, as well as gatherings of families at cemeteries to pray for their deceased loved ones at the end of the day.
It is also a celebration of Life and to remember that we are still here and should enjoy our time with our beloved ones!
So… let’s celebrate Life in the best possible way with a Mexican style party with:
