Featuring a 6:00 pm lecture by psychology professor Dr. Jenny Padilla, followed by a celebration in the lounge.
Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a day of celebration for the people of Latin America, particularly in Mexico and Central America, and more recently for Mexican Americans. Rather than grieve over the loss of a beloved family or friend, they choose to commemorate the lives of the dearly departed and welcome the return of their spirits.
Join ILS for its annual Día de los Muertos events. Ofrendas (altars) honoring the departed have been created by Notre Dame students, faculty and staff. Feel free to bring photos of beloved family members and friends that have passed away to add to an altar.
Free tamales, hot chocolate and pan de muerto will be provided.
