Celebrate the Day of the Dead at LUU this November

We’re excited to be celebrating Día de los Muertos in association with the Mexican Society this November. 

Día de los Muertos, otherwise known as the Day of the Dead, is a Latin American holiday that originated in Mexico, taking place on 2 November. The holiday honours the dead and celebrates life, with festivals and celebrations that feature food, drink, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life. The holiday is focused on joyful celebration rather than mourning, thanks to a recognition of death as a natural part of the human experience – in fact, the deceased play a part in the celebrations themselves.
