Oct 26 – Nov 06

The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican Holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, where the people gathers to pray and remember the loved ones who have died
and help support their spiritual journey.

In 2008 the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

The traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the
departed.

Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican Holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl.

Join us in this cultural tour and learn about Mexican history and traditions!
