The trip takes place over Mexico’s Day of the Dead festival, and we want to let you know why that’s something you might want to experience. Day of the Dead is a lively, life-confirming holiday when Mexicans make altars to commemorate loved ones who have passed and also visit cemeteries to sing to and party with those dear but departed.
On the altars, they put the kinds of food, games, drinks that person really enjoyed. This is supposed to invite the loved one to visit them in their dreams. And it actually works. Some people say that just the act of collecting the items that person liked makes you think about them more, and that’s why you dream about them. Who knows. We just know it’s a lovely and powerful experience.
You don’t have to be Mexican to experience the cathartic, healing work of the Day of the Dead.
