Dia de Los Muertos Celebration

October 28, 2016

dia de la muertaArt Flying Yoga & Art Flying Aerial will be celebrating Ofrenda de Dia de los Muertos on Friday, October 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. This special day celebrates the lives of people who have passed away. This is a FREE celebration for everyone that wants to honor the passing of a beloved one.

The Aztecs developed the ritual some 3,000 years ago because they believed one should not grieve the loss of a beloved ancestor who passed. Instead, the Aztecs celebrated their lives and welcomed the return of their spirits to the land of the living once a year. That’s where the food, drinks, music, (ofrendas) offerings come in.

1.- Potluck (bring your favorite dish to share)
2.- Bring picture(s)
3.- Write a calavera (short poem in the form of epitaphs of your beloved one), it could also be a poem, a message or quote!! A funny story, weird habits, or embarrassing moments.
