Started in 2005, Dia de Muertos Ohio or Day of the Dead Ohio is an annual celebration honoring life & community.
Dia de Muertos or Day of the Dead is one of the most respected holidays in many Latin American countries. Particularly popular in Mexico, the Mexican people honor their dead with great pomp and fanfare. It is a time of great happiness, not sorrow, and our celebration continues in that tradition.

Pre-Columbian in origin, this celebration took place originally during the months of September or Octo...ber and was primarily a harvest festival. Each year, the first crops of bean, corn, and squash were set aside and later prepared as offerings to Tonantzin or Mother Earth, giving thanks for all she had bestowed.

This was also a time to honor one's ancestors who were believed to make their way back from the underworld for their yearly visit. Just as for Tonantzin, food and drink were prepared and placed on ofrendas or altars. This tradition continues to this day, though you may now find personal items of the deceased mixed amidst the bounty of their favorite foods and beverages.

With the introduction of Catholicism following the Spanish conquest, new rituals became part of this long-standing harvest tradition. The cosmology of the Catholics was parallel in many ways to that of the Aztec's, so eventually All Souls' and All Saints' days (November 1st & 2nd) merged with the pre-Columbian harvest rites and became known as the holiday: Dia de Muertos or Day of the Dead.
