Rancho Las Cascadas- The Day of the Dead Celebration in Mexico
The Day of the Dead celebration at Rancho Las Cascadas, is an absolutely wonderful experience. It was truly special to be able to participate in such a rich and beautiful Mexican tradition.
On October 31st, guests will make offerings to their deceased loved ones on an alter decorated in marigolds. A small jar of water was placed by each photograph because souls are thirsty after their long journey. Another contained salt, representing the continuance of life. And a third was filled with the favorite drink of each loved one. On November 1st, a candle was lit by each photo to welcome the spirits to the altar. Over the course of three days, other offerings were also added, like little candies and pan de muerto. The spirits cannot eat or drink what is at the altar. Instead, they absorb the aroma and energy of the food, which nourishes their spirits.
On October 31st, guests make offerings to their deceased loved ones on an alter decorated in marigolds.
The Rancho serves a six-course meal on November 1st in memory of all our loved ones who have died.
