Los Dias de los Muertos 2007

Come join us in the library this week for a very special event. We are honored to host the annual Day of the Dead exhibit this year. The altars are quite stunning. According to the brochure, “ancient Mexicans believed dead people moved on to a different world. Death was another kind of living. Spanish priests, wanting to replace the indigenous religion with the Catholic one, tried to stop the people’s celebrations for the dead. When that didn’t work, they combined the traditions with the ancient Catholic holy days for the dead. All souls and All Saints Day, on November 1st and 2nd.”
