(Today is Dia de los Muertos)….It is celebrated in many Latin American Countries, including Mexico.
For the first time, it was recognized in El Centro last week. In an event co-hosted by the City of El Centro and the Mexican Consulate in Calexico, the Dia de los Muertos was explained to those who attended. It is a day to celebrate Family members and friends who have passed on. Residents sometimes spend all day at the cemetery celebrating. Locally a special cemetery mass was scheduled for early afternoon. Our Lady of Guadalupe was also holding an evening Dia de los Muertos, as well.
