Deep In The Amazon Jungle
Up Coming Events- Día de Muertos
We've all heard about the Day Of The Dead but what is it exactly?
I have ventured deep into the Amazon Rain-forest, and already witnessed some that are preparing for the celebrations to come.
Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is an annual event a celebration of life and death. A day to mourn the dead respectfully keeping them alive in memory and spirit-during the event Día de los Muertos is is said they temporally return back down to earth.
The centerpiece of the celebration is an altar, they are placed to welcome spirits back to the realm of the living. As such, offerings are placed down such as food, drink- Surely they would work up an appetite travelling from the spirit world. A candle for each departed member of the family placed down surrounded by flower petals that are scattered from Alter to Grave-site. These petals, usually marigolds, will gently guide wandering spirits back to their place of rest.
Soon everyone will join in dance and song to celebrate this up-coming event....More to follow soon.
