Dia de los Muertos in El Paso - 2020

Dia de los Muertos events in the El Paso and Las Cruces area are proving to be few and far between for 2020, for obvious reasons. If you are aware of any events, please feel free to forward them and I'll get them posted. 

If there are no events in the area this year, please celebrate in the safety of your home. 

Take time to honor those in our community lost to COVID-19. Remember the others we lost so suddenly on August 3, 2019. Let us also remember our loved ones, family, friends and so many others who have passed on over the years. While we may not be able to reminisce in person...we are all together in spirit. 

"Voces de Mixquic" - a wonderful Dia de los Muertos documentary film

I recently viewed "Voces de Mixquic," a documentary about Dia de los Muertos traditions in a small town on the outskirts of Mexico City. I HIGHLY recommend this film. It is by far the most informative film I have seen about Dia de los Muertos. You truly feel like you are welcoming home departed loved ones with the families that are filmed.  

"Voces de Mixquic" is available on Amazon, and is free to view with Amazon Prime. It is well worth the rental price, too.
