The city of Los Algodones, México hosts its second annual Day of the Dead Celebration on Saturday November 9th 2013.

Jim and I have gone to the celebration several times, and Jim says, “We’re goin’ for sure.”

The Day of the Dead Celebration is hosted with free bread, sugar skulls, music, beer & margaritas to celebrate this Mexican Holiday.

Some 4,000 people are expected to descend on Los Algodones for the celebration—as the place is becoming a medical boom town, especially for dentistry.

The Day of the Dead is a time honored celebration and remembrance of loved ones who have passed away. For Mexicans it is much like Memorial Day in the United States.

It is a tradition for Mexican people to visit cemeteries to be with the souls of the departed and build private altars containing the favorite foods and beverages, as well as photos and memorabilia, of the departed. The intent is to encourage visits by the souls, so the souls will hear the prayers and the comments of the living directed to them.
