Dia de los Muertos at Tacoma Art Museum

Tacoma Art Museum – Dia de los Muertos.

ImageThis is a great event where you can experience a different culture, or maybe celebrate your own. The celebration of Dia de los Muertos is a traditional celebration of the eternal cycle of life.

Today, the holiday combines centuries of indigenous practices with contemporary traditions and spiritual beliefs. Observed in Mexican and other Latin American communities on November 1 and 2 (All Saint’s Day and All Soul’s Day), Día de los Muertos is a powerful, symbolic celebration in honor of relatives and friends who have died. The festival is a joyous celebration that conveys the belief that death is not the end, but rather the beginning of a new stage in life.

This looks like so much fun and the activities are numerous!
