After a year's hiatus, our annual Community Day of the Dead ofrenda is back! If you are local and if you want to honor a loved one's memory with us, please feel free to bring something to display on it, in community with the other items there. We'll have pictures of our founders, Arthur and Mata Jaffe, and paper marigolds and traditional artenanías mexicanas... you bring the rest. Please no food, no plants.
Our ofrenda is in the lobby of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts; you may come visit it even if you're not adding something to it. We’ll keep the ofrenda on display through November 7, and you’re welcome to come collect your ofrenda items after that, should you wish.
Keep in mind Dia de Los Muertos is not Halloween. Halloween ushers in these annual Days of the Dead, of course, but Dia de Los Muertos is more about love and remembrance… and festivity, for sure! It’s a beautiful tradition from Mexico for keeping the channels open, and that is a wonderful thing.
Join us, too, for our Virtual Real Mail Fridays Dia de Los Muertos Social on Friday November 5, from 2 to 5 PM from wherever you are. Come and go as you please. Find the Zoom link here!
