But for many cultures the more serious commemoration of the dead takes place the next day, November 1. It’s known as el Dia de los Muertos in Latin cultures – the Day of the Dead – when parades, elaborate skeleton costumes, and temporary altars are built to honor ancestors and those who have recently passed.</p> Thu, 01 Nov 2012 20:47:34 +0000 Steven Short 18816 at http://kalw.org Day of the Dead exhibit looks into the future by honoring the past
