Día de los Muertos: honoring those who have lost their lives in the Sonoran-Arizona desert
Written by Gabriela Rodríguez Clark, AZJFON Board member
The Day of the Dead represents a celebration of memory and a ritual that privileges the remembrance of those who have passed away, with the hope of seeing them again someday. This celebration takes place on November 1st and 2nd since it is divided into categories: According to the calendar, November 1st corresponds to All Saints, a day dedicated to the "chiquitos" or children, and November 2nd to the “Fieles Difuntos”, that is, to the adults.
Tradition indicates that, to facilitate the return of the souls to earth, cempasúchil flower petals should be scattered and candles should be placed tracing the path they will travel so that these souls do not get lost and reach their destination.
