In Spanish it’s called Día de los Muertos.
Día de los Muertos is a day that has captivated the attention of many. The graceful and artistic face paint adorned the faces of a great amount of people this past Halloween – but Día de los Muertos is a lot more than just beautiful, artistic face paint and sugar skulls. It’s a day that celebrates the passing of our loved ones.
The vivid and bright colors helps set the mood of celebration as we happily remember the departed through art and music; Building beautiful altars with all the deliciousness our departed enjoyed; Smiling at death because our loved ones will always live within us through their lessons, and the wonderful memories.
There is a blissful and happy feeling that lingers when we can remember happily those who have taken these steps before us. So next time you think of el Día de los Muertos, think of the beautiful soul that shined before us. Remember them happily. Smile because death isn’t the end of the soul; death is just a morphing of the soul, leaving the body as a butterfly leaves the cocoon to fly into a distant sky.
En memoria de mis hermosos muertos – aquellos que han volado antes que yo.
