So as I have stated before, I do not celebrate Halloween. I like costumes and such, but not a fan of Halloween. (But I am of MJ’s Thriller!) Anyway, I have many friends who love it and such but other people are slowly coming away from the traditional Halloween celebrations.
The Latino Culture Center, and City of Dallas Office of Culture Affairs presents a great event celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). This is a great experience as I learned and celebrated this event through out high school and will this year.
Below is some info on the event, and a brief overview about the Day of the Dead
About the Day of the Dead
The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos), is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and by Latin Americans living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.
