El Día de los Muertos @ UNT Dallas Library

Come see the awesome display before it's gone!!

         El Día de los Muertos, also known as The Day of the Dead or All Saints Day/All Souls Day is celebrated in Mexico and other Latin countries on November 2

El Día de los Muertos is a day to honor the life and death of relatives and loved ones. Alters are assembled for the arrival of the souls of the departed loved ones. Alters usually consist of favorite foods, an array of flowers, photographs of the individuals, paintings, candles, incense, toys, and drinks. Common places for alters are at the gravesites, homes, and other personal spaces. Many activities include grave cleaning, elaborate dances, vigils and family story telling.
