FINADOS: This observance is more common in Mexico than Belize, but there are several communities where it is observed!

Also known as Hanal Pixan, Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, it coincides with Halloween.

Día de los Finados is an island tradition celebrated between October 31st and November 2nd. It is a celebration in which Mestizos/Maya remember and honor their deceased loved ones. The San Pedro House of Culture continues to promote and preserve this island tradition. On November 2nd, we kindly invite you to join us in remembering our dearly departed.

San Pedro House of Culture celebrates El Dia de Los Finados

On Wednesday, November 16th, residents of La Isla Bonita celebrated their dearly departed at the San Pedro House of Culture’s (SPHC) “El Dia de Los Finandos” celebration (Day of the Dead). This tradition is practiced annually among the Mestizo, Maya and Garifuna cultures on November 1st and 2nd, but due to inclement weather, it had been postponed.

After 90-year-old Tomasita Gomez read several rosaries, and sang Catholic hymns with the audience, the exhibit was opened for viewing. Usually during this celebration, altars are made, adorned with religious amulets, and given food offerings. The foods chosen are generally those that the deceased enjoyed during their life. The exhibit displayed framed photos of loved ones that have passed on, and families observed each one and shared stories about their departed loved ones.

Afterwards, the gathering was able to enjoy some staple foods that were offered to the deceased, such as mechado, maja blanca, rice lab, pumpkin sweets, and Tamalitos de Chaya. The SPHC takes this opportunity to thank all those who sponsored and assisted in making the event possible.
