Cultural Spotlight: Dia de los Muertos

Cultural Spotlight: Dia de los Muertos - Skylawn Funeral Home

Many cultures have unique traditions that celebrate the cycle of life and death, and Latin society is no exception. Each year, Mexico and other Latin America nations have Dia de los Muertos festivities that joyously remember those who have passed on. Though sadness and grief are normal aspects of the mourning process, Dia de los Muertos demonstrates that happiness can be part of it as well. Instead of focusing on the death of their loved ones, individuals who take part in Dia de los Muertos commemorate their lives. With ornate costumes, delicious foods, and energetic gatherings, they pay their respects to the dead.

Skylawn Funeral Home & Memorial Park offers funeral services that cater to a wide variety of cultures and traditions. Our compassionate staff can help you create a ceremony that honors your loved one and reflects your traditions. For more information, call our San Mateo office at (650) 349-4411.
