Celebrating Dia de los Muertos

Despite its name, Día de Los Muertos - or Day of the Dead - is a celebration of the lives of the dead.

The conquistadors, who arrived in the 1500s, attempted to stop the festival but somehow it managed to endure - albeit with a mix of Catholic traditions.

Please note: we will not be at the main Galería location. Rossy Toledo, senior Spanish studies lecturer, said the holiday is region specific.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle, beat the cold butter until it is creamy and smooth.

Once a year the Aztecs held a festival celebrating the death of their ancestors while honoring the goddess Mictecacihuatl, the Queen of the Underworld or the Lady of the Dead. "That's just party foul". All are invited to bring photos of departed loved ones to place on the altar.

Dia de los Muertos passports will be distributed and stamped. All gifts for the dead, they usually include some of the favorite things of the one who passed.

The Dia De Los Muertos event is the biggest annual fundraiser for the Sofia Quintero Center, so there is significant need to make the event a success.

Alejandra Nieland Zavala, an education policy graduate student and alliance member, originally introduced the idea to make the altar to her fellow graduate students.

A recent article on style website Bustle.com listed the Day of the Dead sugar-skull mask or face painting as one of eight costumes that "are actually racist, even if you might not realize it" unless one was raised in Mexican culture and observes Dia de los Muertos.

"We revised their history on those two days", Toledo said.

You can choose to roast the chicken whole or cut it in half. Toledo and her sister cook his favorite recipes and have a dinner to celebrate his life. When you are gone, you are not truly gone if someone remembers you and celebrates your life.

Villasenor Black said she too was "more conscious of the issue of appropriation" with Day of the Dead merchandise. Add the oil to the spice mix as well and spread that spicy oil mix gently under the skin and all over the chicken.

The Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a hot topic in the Disney fan community these days, with Disney-Pixar's latest feature "Coco" hitting theaters in November and Disney California Adventure's Plaza de la Familia in full swing at the park's Paradise Gardens area.

People who celebrate it believe that, on and around November 1, spirits can easily pass between our world and the afterlife.

It took place at the South Broadway Cultural Center.

Day of the Dead can be a very expensive holiday.
