Celebrate Dia de los Muertos co-sponsored by SLPA, CLAS and SURPAS

November 1, 2019 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Li Ka Shing Center Herb Garden


What is Day of the Dead/Día de los Muertos? Day of the dead happens annually on November 2nd. It is a tradition that honors those who have passed while celebrating the continuation of life and embracing the belief that death is not the end of our connection with others. During this night the living and the dead are reunited for 24 hours of celebrations.

How do we celebrate Día de lost Muertos? One common way to celebrate day of the dead is to make an altar with traditional flowers, bread ("pan de muerto") and other foods, candles, sugar skulls, and pictures of loved ones who have passed away. Throughout the night we enjoy the deceased's favorite foods, listen to their favorite music, and share stories about their life.

Come celebrate this special day with SURPAS, SLPA, CLAS, Hermanas in STEM and El Centro. It will follow the SURPAS monthly happy hour. We will be putting together an altar. Please fill out this form if you would like SLPA to print your family pictures for you and if you would like to provide a song for the playlist! Otherwise, please bring your own pictures and "recuerdos" (keepsakes) for the altar! (You will get these back at the end of the event)

See you on Friday!
