Dia de los Muertos

Here are some photos of the ofrenda I made this year. I placed photos of deceased family members, food offerings (this year was homegrown peppers and chilis), along with candles and trinkets on the altar. It’s a tradition I’ve created in our house, and something I’ve come to truly enjoy. Putting the ofrenda together always coincides nicely with Halloween celebrations and the changing of the seasons. This year’s altar has a harvest feel, with the pumpkins and garden offerings. The ritual of lighting the candles in the evening and paying respect to those who’ve passed on creates a solemn but sacred ending to the day.

  1. It’s heavy seeing all these people I have loved so much who are no longer physically with me.
    Thanks for caring and for helping us keep them in our hearts.
