¡Día de los Muertos!

Date: 7:00pm PDT October 31, 2011 Location: Stamm

Come celebrate with us and enjoy Mexican hot chocolate, chips and salsa, face painting, learn how to make pan de muerto (Day of the Dead bread), decorate candles, and take part in this celebration for the dead! Traditionally, Latin American cultures honor their loved ones who have passed away by making an altar for their loved ones. The altar consists of pictures, flowers, bread, fruits, drinks, and anything that was dear to those who have passed away. If you would like to participate bring a picture of someone who has passed away and place it on the altar (ex. A picture of Steve Jobs). This is not just a commemoration of the dead, but a celebration of death we have cheated by living another day. Since it will be on Halloween, you can feel free to wear your costume and add a little Halloween flare to it!

GLU signature event brought to you by MOSAIC, The Latin American Solidarity Committee, and the Spanish Club.
