Celebrate Dia de los Muertos this Weekend

You can catch Rain of Rain's Embellishments at El Panteon de Sacramento this weekend. She will have plenty of new necklaces, bracelets, and earrings in stock.

Día de los Muertos is a traditional Meso-American holiday dedicated to the ancestors; it honors both death and the cycle of life. In Mexico, neighbors gather in local graveyards to share food, music and fun with their families and extended community, both living and departed. This most personal of all Mexican holidays, Dia de los Muertos has become an international phenomenon in recent years, and acknowledges the belief that death is only another phase of life from which we both shrink from and celebrate.

Whether in the day, or bathed in the light of the moon, upon entering LA RAZA GALERIA POSADA'S Panteon de Sacramento @ J St. & 20th St. in midtown Sacramento, one immediately feels that it is a place of memories and, the presence of those who have passed. 50 large alteres, created by individuals, families and non-profits.This is free, all are welcome.
