Celebrate Day of the Dead with Friends of Hospice
Thursday, October 4th, 2018

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is an important holiday in Mexico – a joyous occasion for remembering loved ones who have passed. This festival has been celebrated for over 3,000 years and ceremonies have evolved through time. Current traditions include placing sugar skulls to decorate gravestones and creating personal altars adorned with candles, flowers and sometimes edibles.

Friends of Hospice are sponsoring an altar walk beginning October 1st that will guide you to local businesses where altars are on display. You can download a map of the walk, or pick one up at the Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce. You can view altars made by community members at the Fort Bragg Library. If you become inspired, you can attend a class sponsored Friends of Hospice and make your own.
