- Melanie: I'm a loner. would you mind helping me change that?
Dia de los muertos was last week , the day we remember all the adults that have passed away, a very sad day, on November the 2nd in remembrance of our loved ones we build alters, and put pictures and stuff that helps us remember everything about the person on it, including favorite foods, then we all sit around and talk about the person, the good mostly, it is a day we remember and welcome the dead back home into our arms, November 2nd was the day all the children came home, November 3rd is when the adults come home. we celebrate and rejoice when they come home, we light special incense to lead them home to us safely, and we also help them depart when its time by burning the same incense while exiting the home, the catholic church rings the bells when it is time for them to come home, and when it is time for them to return to god. it is a very complex holiday…but It is a very emotional time.
