Hallowed grounds come to life for Day of the Dead

The hushed aura that prevails at lakeside area cemeteries through most of the year dissipates over the final days of October as local inhabitants prepare to honor the dearly departed.

Folks pick up their tools and head out to the Camposanto (hallowed ground) to spruce up family burial plots where they will soon gather in remembrance of lost loved ones.


November 1, Dia de Todos los Santos (All Saints Day) is dedicated to the memory of angelitos – the “little angels” who died in infancy – while November 2, Dia de los Fieles Difuntos (Day of the Faithful Dead), is set aside for those who passed away at a riper age. Consult next week’s Reporter for details on the wide array of upcoming Day of the Dead activities.
