Day of the Dead ~ Dia de los Muertos


 

 

El Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, is a traditional Mexican holiday celebrated on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2. This is a joyous occasion when the memory of deceased ancestors and the after life is celebrated. It is believed that at this time the souls of the departed return to visit the living, as well as bring good luck to their families. It is a time to remember family and friends who have died. It is a very colorful and joyful occasion.

Traditions are celebrated by the families visiting gravesites, where they clean and decorate the graves with flowers, food, candles, colorful skulls and toys.

Families will often bring a picnic to eat at the gravesite and bring the favorite foods and drinks of the deceased, as offerings. They build private altars adorned with flowers and photos to honor the deceased. The skeleton represents the spirit that still lives on.   The families decorate or bring sugar cubes decorated to look likesmall sugar skulls. They share memorable stories of the departed. 

In many large cities they often have parades with horses, dancers and musicians. Latino artists from all over the country come to exhibit and sell their art pieces. This community event has grown into a yearly cross-cultural event and is observed in Mexico, United States and Canada. The vendors sell sugar skulls, candy coffins, paintings, crafts, and other “Day of the Dead” treats.  It is not a morbid occasion, but rather a festive time.

How to…with Caruso ♫☼♣↓♥


Do you want to know how you can add hearts, music notes and other cool symbols to your Facebook status, texts and chats?

Courtesy of my wife, Cris. There are three ways!

1. You can Download the many apps.

2. You can Copy or Paste. This doesn’t always work if the symbols are all grouped together. Try pressing “Ctrl” + “Z” to solve the problem.

3. Do it Yourself. You can type the symbols from your keyboard by using the ‘alt’ key!

If you have a laptop or computer, make sure you ‘Num Lock’ key is ON. The ‘Num Lock’ button is on the top right of your keyboard.

Next, hold down ‘Alt’ key as you type. The ‘Alt” button is in the bottom left of your keyboard, and press type the following:

Hold ‘Alt’ then type any numbers…

Alt and 1 makes ☺
Alt and 2 makes ☻
Alt and 3 makes ♥
Alt and 4 makes ♦
Alt and 5 makes ♣
Alt and 6 makes ♠
Alt and 7 makes •
Alt and 8 makes ◘
