The Hispanic Heritage Awareness Committee and Beyond the Book present:
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Celebration
Dia de los Muertos is a (primarily Mexican) holiday that takes place from October 31 through November 2. People gather to remember and pray for dear ones who have pass on, for the purpose of supporting the deceased respective spiritual journeys.
Traditionally those celebrating the holiday build home altars called ofrendas. These altars are decorated with calaveras, or sugar skulls, Aztec marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed. People will also go to the cemeteries to decorate their loved ones' graves and bring those same gifts of food and drink with them.
We will provide more detailed information about Dia de los Muertos and discuss why it is important to celebrate this holiday. We will also discuss a relevant passage from the book, From Here to Eternity, one of the Beyond the Book selections.
