Dia De Los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a two-day holiday that celebrates death and life. 

For Dia de los Muertos, families traditionally return home from all over the world to welcome the dead with respect and devotion. Families create ofrendas (offerings) to honor the departed and it is believed that the dead have divine permission to visit their loved ones and join in celebrations.
To celebrate Dia de los Muertos, DMC Library staff have created a webpage of resources that detail the cultural and historical significance of this annual tradition. Current Del Mar College students and employees can access the webpage with their DMC username and password. Community members are encouraged to view the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) information at: https://libguides.delmar.edu/dayofthedead
