Day of the Dead at Xochi's in MexicanTown
Mexicans celebrate the Day of the Dead on Nov 1-2 and we love to join in the festivities, too. There's a store in MexicanTown called Xochi's that sells Day of the Dead skeletons and even has an authentic ofrenda --or altar--set up in their back room complete with the traditional marigold flowers and candles. These particular days really do celebrate life and honor those loved ones in our families who have passed on.
