For those who aren’t familiar with this holiday, it is celebrated in Mexico to remember those who have passed on. I absolutely LOVE this holiday! It shows such a healthy view of death in my opinion. Families are forever!
I just love the idea of remembering those who we loved and essentially inviting them to visit us by creating altars and setting out their favorite foods/candies/drinks. They were important to us in life and are still important to us to this day.
Personally, I think it is a best practice to teach culture as well as language to our children. There are typically celebrations in every state for Day of the Dead. If you just do a quick google search I’m sure you will find something. In Utah, Thanksgiving Point does one every year. They offer food, face painting, entertainment, dancing, sugar skull decorating and even have altars that different families set up to honor their loved ones.
We all have our own beliefs and you may or may not agree with me on this one, but for me knowing that I will see my family again is so comforting!
