Featured Gallery: Dia de los Muertos
We’ve made it no secret, we LOVE the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. So much so that we’ve even created a gallery for it!
Every year from October 31st-November 2nd, Mexico honors the deceased with a three-day celebration full of festivals, ofrendas (altars), marigolds, and visits to the cemetery where they enjoy food, sing songs and recall memories of loved ones. Ofrendas are first set up in homes, businesses and in cemeteries with the dead’s favorite food or drink and belongings as a way to encourage them to return during this time. You’ll also see marigolds everywhere as they believe their scent and bright colors guide the souls back to earth and to their altars.
Simply put, it’s a beautiful celebration with a beautiful meaning behind it which is why we wanted to bring it to the Artcast app. We do hope you enjoy the all vibrant hues and spectacular symbology in our “Dia de los Muertos” gallery!
