Mexico's festival of the Days of the Dead is an observance with very ancient roots. For pre-Hispanic cultures, life was considered to be no more than a passing moment, a dream from which one would awaken. Today, the Days of the Dead are celebrated each year on November 1st and 2nd. On these days it is believed the dead return from beyond to visit with the living. Special foods are prepared, breads are baked, altars to the dead are built in homes, and cemeteries are cleaned and decorated with flowers. The souls of the dead are said to return from the after-life to visit the living, where they consume the food and drink left for them, enjoying the brief pleasures of life once more. The living receive the dead with merriment and music!

Every fall, the Milagro Theater celebrates el Dia de los Muertos with a show featuring music and dance to celebrate this rich hispanic tradition. This year's performance is La Carpa del Ausente and is running from October 26 through November 11. Find out more at www.milagro.org.

To the letterbox:
Comienzas en el teatro Milagro en la esquina de la calle de SE Stark y la calle de SE 6th. Caminas norte un poco menos de dos bloques y buscas el arbol espinoso que es creciendo en medio de los edificios en la derecha izquierdo de la calle. El Dia De Los Muertos Letterbox es ocultando en los ramas de este guardian espinoso.
