Many Latinos are getting ready for a holiday that is called Día de los Muertos. November 2nd is hailed as one of the most sacred days on the calendar. Many gather together to pay homage and honor those who are no long with us.
I’ve seen many altars growing up, but never really understood them until not too long ago. If this is something new to you or if you have never seen a Day of the Dead altar, it can be intimidating and scary at first. But the meaning and the sacredness behind the flowers, candles, and the Katrinas (skeletons) is something truly beautiful.
Take a look at these impressive Día de los Muertos altars. Maybe they will inspire you to build one of your own. Check out these beautiful floral crowns that you can wear on Day of the Dead.
