For the first time ever, we created our own ofrenda. We did it to educate the kids on the meaning of Halloween, all saints day and All Souls’ Day. We find it to be a nice cathartic tradition. Yesterday we went to the feast of all saints mass.
All Saints Day and All Souls’ Day is celebrated very similarly in the Philippines. We got to celebrate with the family in 2010. http://svobodakc.blogspot.com/2010/11/philippines-2010-day-11.html?m=0
We also watched videos and movies on Dia de los Muertos such as The Book of Life.
I took the kiddos to the Dia de los Muertos celebration in Kansas City, Kansas.
