SC DIaDeLosMuertosWhat's it all about? Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. It is believed that the spirit of the dead visit their families. It can be thought of as when the spirits of heaven and earth come together in celebration of the lives of those gone before. The tradition originated with the indigenous people of the American Continent, the Aztec, Toltec, Mayan and Incas. It has evolved into a treasured time within for Hispanic culture as well as being enjoyed by others. It is so perfect an occasion for gathering, learning and sharing with friends and family within our community and beyond.
