El Dia de Muertos


From pre Columbian times, El Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead has been celebrated in Mexico, and other Latin countries. This is a very special ritual, since it is the day in which the living remember our departed relatives. Sometimes, when people of other cultures hear for the first time about the celebration of the Day of the Dead, they mistakenly think it must be: gruesome, terrifying, scary, ugly and sad. Nothing further from the truth, Day of the Dead is a beautiful ritual in which we happily and lovingly remember loved relatives that have died.

Ofrendas are set up in the houses for their dead relatives. Generally ofrendas are set up on a table covered with a tablecloth and papel picado. They are decorated with sugar skulls, candles, cempasuchil flowers, and paper mache skeletons. Plates with the favorite foods of their dead relatives are also set on the ofrenda. Some have also liquor and cigarettes. On the ofrendas for the deceased children they place toys in addition to the food. Often items are placed that reminiscent of the deceased a favorite photo or souvenir of an event.

Gandolf Fine Chocolate has a new take on the sugar skull. Your ofrenda will be the envy of the neighborhood with an chocolate skull from Gandolf’s Fine Chocolate -Saturday market.
