A Dinner to Remember By: Celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and the Gifts of Our Loved Ones Who Have Gone Before Us
In Mexico and other Hispanic cultures, there is a deep recognition of the connection with those loved ones who have died and who live on in us. At the beginning of November, when All Souls and All Saints Days are celebrated, the veil lifts and the connection can be felt even more deeply.
Favorite foods of the departed are prepared. Altars are created with their photos, special belongings and favorite foods and beverages, and flowers adorn homes, altars, and cemeteries. It is a time of remembrance, gratitude and connection. Many of our Hispanic friends cannot return to their countries to celebrate at the cemeteries in their pueblos.
We will share our stories and our food to honor our own, as we honor the rich culture and traditions that our Hispanic neighbors generously share with us. We offer them our care and support at this time of great distress.
Please bring a favorite dish of a departed family member or friend, a photo and/or a symbol or favorite belonging for the altar, and a story to share.
$10-$25 suggested donation to support Threshold and make a donation to the Multicultural Outreach Program (www.mcopwi.org) Space is limited.
