The heart of this Dia de los Muertos festival pays tribute to feminine strength through rich
tradition. We celebrate our heritage and honor the stories of our ancestors.

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS DECONSTRUCTED
An integral part of Mexican tradition, Dia De Los Muertos festivities unfold over two days in an explosion of color and life-affirming joy while demonstrating love and respect for deceased family members and loved ones.
Day of the Dead originated several thousand years ago with the Aztec, Toltec, and other Nahua people, who considered mourning the dead disrespectful. For these pre-Hispanic cultures, death was a natural phase in life’s long continuum. The dead were still members of the community, kept alive in memory and spirit—and during Día de los Muertos, they temporarily returned to Earth. Today’s Día de los Muertos celebration is a mash-up of pre-Hispanic religious rites and Christian feasts. It takes place on November 1 and 2—All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day on the Catholic calendar—around the time of the fall maize harvest.
