Oakley organizations set to host Día de los Muertos celebration

San Francisco Symphony is celebrating the day with two Dia de Los Muertos community concerts on Saturday, November 4.

Yet Joan Harrold, marketing development manager at the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center, said Dia de Los Muertos "is really full of life; it's not a somber or morbid occasion at all".

RT: The holiday's origins can be traced to the conceptualization of the afterlife from many cultures: Toltec, Olmec, Mayans, and Aztecs. "I think it is a really important thing for everyone to do because everyone has a different way of doing it".

He is also on La Voz Kids, a version of the popular musician competition show The Voice on Telemundo. The Center has limited supplies that will be distributed on a first come first serve basis on October 25. People observe it in Mexico and various countries in Central and South American countries by visiting and decorating graves, dressing in traditional clothing and taking part in parades. Supplies and materials will be provided.

The Neon Museum is celebrating the Day of the Dead with free self-guided access to the Neon Boneyard from 1 to 7 p.m. Oct. 28.

The festivities include four stages with music and dance performances. Other altar items include bright Mexican marigolds and calaveras (sugar skulls) to guide the spirits on their journey back to Earth. The pan de muerto that we see at bakeries today came after the arrival of the Europeans and the introduction of wheat flour.

One of the biggest celebrations of Day of the Dead is in Southern California at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Try as they might to wipe out all traces of paganism, the Spaniards couldn't stamp out the Aztecs' tradition of honoring their dead, so the conquistadors gradually absorbed the pagan spring festival, the date of which was eventually moved to coincide with the Catholic feasts of All Saints' Day on Nov. 1 and All Souls' Day on Nov. 2.

To honor the deceased, survivors create altars of tribute called ofrendas and gather some of the dead person's favorite foods or possessions.
