The History of Dia de los Muertos and La Catrina!
Dia de Los Muertos is a special holiday in Hispanic cultures that is observed annually from Nov. 1 to Nov. 2.
Though this holiday takes place during Halloween time, Dia de Los Muertos is an entirely different celebration. Those who celebrate this holiday do so with joy rather than sadness acknowledging that death is a natural and normal part of life.
One of the most recognizable figures of Dia de Los Muertos is “La Catrina,” who is depicted as an elegantly dressed and well put together skeleton. While the makeup may represent the beauty in passing and remembering those we love, she communicates the concept that regardless of social status everyone is equal in the end through death.
It is believed that during Día de los Muertos, the spirits of those who have passed away return to visit their loved ones who are still alive.
To welcome their loved ones for their return, families and communities come together to create ofrendas filled with cempasuchil, papel picado, sugar skulls, and images of deceased loved. And, in death as in life, food is considered nourishment for the soul, so their favorite foods and drinks are also placed on the altar.
Pan de muerto is a highly symbolic food that is commonly placed on ofrendas. The round shape is said to represent the circle of life and death, with a round dough ball on top to symbolize the skull of the deceased and pieces of dough across the bread symbolizing their bones and tears, in addition to the four cardinal points. It is also flavored with orange blossom in honor of the deceased.
All of this is done to guide and invite the spirits of our loved ones back to visit with us for one day out of the year and reminds us that our ties to the dead are ever-present.
