Dia de los Muertos originated centuries ago with the Aztecs. They honored the lives of their late family members by creating and decorating beautiful altars with colorful flowers and favorite items of the departed. The tradition continued and has become popular in the United States, including here in Santa Maria. It allows community members to celebrate and remember the lives of family and friends who have passed away. All are welcome to participate in this celebration.
