Latino Law Society presents its First Annual Day of the Dead Altar Day of the Dead is a traditional Latino celebration where we celebrate the lives that have passed on. We display pictures of our loved ones, along with papel picado, candles, bread, bowl with water, flowers, skulls and other items that remind you of your loved ones. The tradition is to setup the altar and it is believed that your loved one visits the altar, partakes in the offerings you display and washes their hands before departing.

The Altar will be on Display in LRC from Monday October 29 through Friday November 2, 2012. We will be having Hot Chocolate and Day of the Dead Bread on Thursday November 1, 2012.

If you would like more information on the Altar or how you can display a picture of your loved one, please email latino@lclark.edu
