Story & Discovery: Día de los Muertos
Description
 Tuesday, October 9, 2018, 11:15 – 11:45 am 

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a festival celebrated from midnight October 31 through November 2 by people in Mexico, parts of Central and South America, and increasingly throughout the United States. This celebration originates from the Indigenous cultures of Mesoamerica, including the Mexica (Aztec) and Maya peoples. It is not a sad or scary occasion, but a spirited holiday when people remember and honor family members who have passed away.

 September 15 through October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month. We’re continuing our observance with the October storybook Día de los Muertos , written by Roseanne Greenfield Thong and illustrated by Carles Ballesteros. Families are invited to join us and learn about the traditions of Día de los Muertos, including ofrendas, sugar skulls, silly skeletons, and more!
