LCAC seeks new board & committee members
The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, traditionally celebrated November 1st and 2nd. The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. In addition, September 15th through October 15th is National Hispanic Heritage Month. The three-day fiesta is filled with marigolds, the flowers of the dead and candle light processions meandering through town to the cemetery. Families tidy and decorate graves of the deceased and leave offerings of Pan de muerto (sweet roll topped with sugar), and sugar skulls along with other traditional foods and decorations. Making an altar for
Dia de los Muertos can be a way for family and individuals to honor the life of someone who was important to them.
Altars pay special tribute to the departed.
