Dia De Los Muertos

Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos) at the Ranch

Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos) is a holiday that reunites the living and dead. It is a celebration that takes places on November 2nd. Families create offerings (Ofrendas) to honor their departed family members that have passed. These altars are decorated with bright yellow marigold flowers, photos of the departed, and the favorite foods and drinks of the one being honored. The offerings are believed to encourage visits from the land of the dead as the departed souls hear their prayers, smell their foods and join in the celebrations!
