November 1 -- Secular Day of the Dead (Virtual Event)

 

The traditional Day of the Dead celebration for 2020 is taking on a decidedly nonreligious atmosphere this year! Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, the 2020 Secular Day of the Event/Dia de los Muertos event is being offered as an online event.

Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead honors all dead loved ones. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas; honoring the deceased using sugar skulls and marigolds, as well as the favorite foods and beverages of the deceased. 

“Nontheist Hispanics view the Secular Day of the Dead as a perfect way to remember the legacy of deceased loved one in a way that does not require prayer, church, or any religious dogma. To nontheists, our legacies are our afterlife,” said, Dan Barker co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (a co-sponsor of this event). Baker will talk about his journey from an evangelical preacher in Mexico to atheist during the event.

Participants are encouraged to share a photograph or portrait of a deceased loved one during the Honoring Ceremony portion of the Zoom. They will be invited to talk about favorite memories and the legacy of the person who died – in essence, bringing that person back to life with a spoken remembrance. Advance registration is requested, register here.
