Dia De Los Muertos Description:
It's time to Celebrate our 21st annual Day of the Dead show. This festive Mexican Holiday honors all those who have passed before us. But let us not be somber. There will be paintings, drawings, sculptures and more. Like thecelebration of a birthday, this holiday reconfirms annually the love, goodwill, and generosity that the beloved can count on, no matter that they are dead.
Día de los Muertos is a holiday celebrated in many parts of the world, typically on November 1 (All Saints' Day) and November 2 (All Souls' Day).
The Day of the Dead is also celebrated to a lesser extent in other Latin American countries;for example, it is a public holiday in Brazil, where many Brazilians celebrate it by visiting cemeteries and churches. The holiday is also observed in the Philippines. Observance of the holiday has spread toMexican-American communities in the United States, where in some locations, the traditions are being extended. Similarly-theme dcelebrations also appear in some Asian and African culture.
Though the subject matter may be considered morbid from the perspective of some other cultures, celebrants typically approach the Day of the Dead joyfully, and though it occurs at the same time as Halloween, All Saints' Day and All Souls Day, the traditional mood is much brighter with emphasis on celebrating and honoring the lives of the deceased, and celebrating the continuation of life; the belief is not that death is the end, but rather the beginning of a new stage in life.
