Day of the Dead

Guatemala Day of the Dead

El dia de los muertos, or Day of the Dead, is one of my favorite holidays in Guatemala. It is a day of family gatherings in the cementary to spend time with and remember departed loved ones. Often families will bring flowers and food,  gathering around family tombs and graves. Kites are another important part of this day. Traditionally, it is believed that the kite creates a connection of communication between our loved ones’ spirits in the sky and us on earth. Throughout the country during this time of year, you’ll see children flying homemade kites in the mountains and fields. Below are some of our favorite photos of the day:
