Día de Los Muertos, is a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, and by people everywhere. The celebrations are joyous and colorful and practiced differently depending on where you go. People visit the cemetery where their loved ones are buried. They decorate with marigold flowers and candles, sit on picnic blankets next to the gravesite and eat the favorite food of their loved ones. In my Sonoran Desert Home of Tucson, Arizona, The Day of the Dead Holiday is one of our largest community wide celebrations. Being just hours from the border of Mexico, The tradition is a part of our culture as well. Family and friends gather to pray for and remember loved ones who have died, to support their spiritual journey. The Day of the Dead is not a day of sadness but a day of celebration, when a family’s loved ones awake and celebrate with them. In Tucson, We walk in The All Souls Procession to celebrate and remember our loved ones, family and friends who have passed on.
