DETAILS

It is believed that on the Day of the Dead the realm of the spirit world can cross over to reinhabit this world. A blend of pre-Hispanic ritual and old-world religion, the Day of the Dead is a two-day event, celebrated beginning midnight Oct 31st thru Nov 2nd, where Mexican families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives in a celebratory reunion of life. Its roots date back some 3,000 years to the ancient peoples living in what is now modern-day Mexico. In Mexican culture it is said that you die twice, once when you physically pass and again when your name is last spoken.
