… that is the term that the USFS is using to describe the prescribed burns that we are going to be choked out by this week … in fact it is already underway and they are going to be igniting them with full knowledge that the smoke will be coming down into the valleys and tens of thousands of human beings will be forced to breathe the horrible pollutants that they are putting into the air.

Day of the Dead Rocks at Tlaquepaque!

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, Sedona AZSedona AZ (October 20, 2017) – Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, Mexico’s ever-popular celebration honoring those who have passed on, is fast becoming a North American phenomenon. In Sedona this spectacular event occurs every year at Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village. Now in its seventh year, the Day of the Dead will take place on Saturday, October 28th from 2:00 to 8:00 pm. Be sure to bring family, friends and young ones for an unforgettable cultural and entertainment extravaganza.

Traditionally, Dia de los Muertos often starts weeks in advance of the day. As part of the observance, families gather to create special shrines in the home and prepare personal offrenda or offerings, like pan de muerto, a special Day of the Dead bread, sugar skulls, candles, cempasuchil flowers, papier mache skeletons, and plates of favorite foods in remembrance of loved ones who have died. It is believed that their spirits consume the essence and the aroma of the foods that are offered. When the spirits depart, the family, friends and neighbors who remain share the food together in celebration. Read More→
