Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.
Day of the Dead is not a celebration common to where I live. I have come to learn that the essence of this occasion is a day to consciously honor and remember those who have passed. Gathering in the company of family and friends; to share food, fond memories & funny anecdotes.
To everyone this and every day, I send you good vibes as you reflect and remember those you have lost.
