Every year my wife creates an ofrenda in the days leading up to Dia de los Muertos. This is a tradition and day I was totally unaware of until we got married three decades ago. If you want your life enriched, marrying into a new culture is a good way to do it. Not the only way, but a good way.
I really love this tradition. I enjoy having a time to remember those who have gone before and celebrate them. I would like to be remembered when I’m gone.
