A.L.C.S. Provides A ���Moment Of Pride��� For Puerto Rico

Día de Muertos is around the corner. The holiday, celebrated in Mexico and parts of Latin America and the United States, is one of remembrance and community. It’s an opportunity to spend time with the memories of those who came before us. And though death is at the forefront, Día de Muertos is also a celebration of life.

The traditional way of celebrating is by making an ofrenda — an offering that often features a photo of the person being remembered, candles, foods and items specific to them, cempasúchiles (marigolds), papel picado and calaveras (sugar skulls).

Inspired by those found at Grand Park and the Hollywood Forever Cemetery around this time of the year, we've created our own communal digital altar. We asked readers to create their own ofrendas by uploading a photo of a loved one they'd like to remember and sharing a memory or an anecdote about them. We received more than 1,000 submissions.

If you want to build an ofrenda at home, here’s a helpful how-to guide with tips from Día de Muertos altar experts.

Ofrendas

Her need to bring out dessert the second dinner ended. Her ritual of standing in the driveway waving & yelling "BYE!!!" until we were around the corner. I'll long for all these things and little memories, but mostly I'm thankful.

In the years after my dad passed away I told my mom this was my favorite photo of him. She responded with, "he was smoking a joint in this picture...". Then I said, " What! No, he wasn't. How do you know?". She said, "... because I was there, stupid, sitting right across from him. We were at a BBQ."
