DIa De los muertos project.
Dia De Los Muertos or Day Of The Dead is a day dedicated to honoring those who have departed. Dia De Los Muertos is celebrated throughout Mexico, Spain, Italy, South America, and the philippines. Although Dia De Los Muertos is most commonly associated with Mexico, where many day of the dead traditions have originated, it is also celebrated widely in many other countries throughout the world. Dia De Los Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd each year. Dia De Los Muertos is traditionally celebrated by making elaborate beautiful altars to celebrate and honor loved ones who have passed to the other side. Altars are usually decorated with flowers, candles, ceramic or sugar skulls, food and drink, and pictures of loved ones.
For my Altar a friend and I chose to honor one of our favorite musicians. To do this we had to do some research to find out more information about him. To decorate our altar we made traditional sugar skulls and also did our best to use as many traditional decorations as possible. The whole process of working on my altar and participating in a tradition that has been going on for thousands of years was really special to me. it really gave me a new appreciation for a holiday that I had previously known very little about.
