A list of the many Day of the Dead events happening this weekend in San Diego
By Brent E. Beltrán
Every year Mexicans celebrate their dead by honoring and remembering passed loved ones or people they may have admired on los días de los muertos, the Days of the Dead. November 1 is for honoring the children that have moved on from this mortal plane. November 2 is for remembering the adults.
How one honors those that are no longer here varies. The meaning does as well. Though it always comes down to remembering.
I asked some people I know, what does Día de los Muertos mean to you? Here are their responses and then a listing of Día de los Muertos celebrations throughout San Diego.
