¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!

¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!

En México se celebra el Día de los Muertos el 1 y 2 de noviembre.  El primero se dedica a los angelitos – los niños difuntos, y el segundo es para los adultos difuntos.  Durante estos dos días se celebra la vida de nuestros seres queridos que ya no están con nosotros en la tierra.  La celebración es para que los seres queridos difuntos sigan viviendo en nuestros recuerdos y corazones.

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday celebrated on November 1st and 2nd throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures on.  The 1st is dedicated to the “little angels” – departed infants and children, and the 2nd is for departed adults.  The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends where we remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed.  It is believed that if we celebrate the memory of our departed loved ones they will never be forgotten.

Hay un dicho en México que dice:  

Todos morimos tres veces
– La primera cuando dejas de respirar
– La segunda cuando regresamos a la madre tierra
– La tercera cuando alguien pronuncia tu nombre por última vez – cuando ya no hay nadie más que nos recuerde. 

There is a saying in Mexico that says:   

We all die three times:

-The first when you stop breathing.

-The second when we return to mother earth.

-The third when someone pronounces your name for the last time – when there is no one left to remember you.

Aquí está un video que nos muestra la importancia de recordar a nuestros seres queridos que han muerto y de compartir la tradición de Día de los Muertos con nuestros hijos(as).

Here is a video that shows us the importance of remembering our departed loved ones and sharing the tradition of Día de los Muertos with our children.
