All Souls Days
(Dia de los Muertos)

Hello Friends, I want to share information about the spiritual festival that takes place on November 1 and 2, yes is after the Samhain festival.

Let me tell you that this Samhain party is not only for the Autumn-Winter solstice but also to start the festival of the dead, means the spirits and the rituals that are carried out in union with nature, the universe and its animals.

Although if North America has industrialized it like Christmas, let’s not forget its true origin and how it should be done.
