Join Borracha for Día de Los Muertos and Bottomless Margaritas
This time of year, there’s always a lot of buzz around Halloween and the festive season that follows. While everyone else is concentrating on these major holidays of the season, we’re focused on celebrating one of the most important holidays in Mexico – the Day of the Dead. But, before we get started with our celebration, let’s take a minute to learn more about this special holiday and how you can join the festivities with Borracha.
The Day of the Dead – A Cause for Celebration in Mexico
Día de Los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is a holiday that’s celebrated throughout all of Mexico – however, you’ll find that celebrations are kicked up a few notches through Central Mexico and the Southern part of the country. Contrary to what many people north of the border believe, the Day of the Dead isn’t a single day of celebration, but actually several days of honoring and celebrating the life of family members who have passed away.
We tend to associate the Day of the Dead with sugar skulls and festive decorations, however the significance behind the holiday goes so much deeper than that. People of Mexican heritage celebrate Día de Los Muertos by gathering with friends and family, praying for those who have passed on into their spiritual journeys, and celebrating their lives and memories. While loved ones are dearly missed, this is hardly a holiday of sadness and mourning. Instead, it’s a true celebration as this is the time of year that loved ones who have passed on “awaken” to join in the celebrations.
How the Day of the Dead Is Celebrated In Mexico
Día de Los Muertos is one of the most festive occasions in Mexico, and as you might imagine, there is nothing spared in the celebrations that surround the Day of the Dead. Festivals and parades fill the days – and the streets – during Día de Muertos.
During the three-day celebration, family members visit cemeteries and build beautiful, colorful alters to honor their deceased loved ones – complete with vibrantly colored mums and the favorite foods of their relatives. This is all done to encourage their loved ones to pay a visit during this time when the veil between the worlds is thin, so that they may hear their prayers and see how they are being honored in this life.
During the Day of the Dead celebrations, festivals and parades line the streets. Homes are decorated with colorful flowers, sugar skulls and spreads of incredible food for the living to enjoy while honoring the dead. Of course, here in the United States we like to celebrate the Day of the Dead with our neighbors to the south, paying tribute to their traditions and honoring our own loved ones at the same time.
You might not live in a neighborhood where Day of the Dead festivals line your streets, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t celebrate the occasion. At Borracha, we believe Día de Los Muertos is an occasion worth celebrating, and we plan on doing just that in our own special way.
Celebrating the Day of the Dead at Borracha
