San Pedro House of Culture observes Dia de Los Finados

Many 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) on Friday, November 2nd. A large crowd gathered to observe the celebration and Director of the SPHC Mito Paz welcomed them warmly, explaining the importance of El Dia de Los Finados.

“El Dia de los Finados is a tradition of our people. In Pre-Hispanic times, the dead were buried close to family homes and there was great emphasis on maintaining ties with deceased ancestors, who were believed to continue to exist in a different place,” said Paz. He further stated that prior to the arrival of the Spanish, the indigenous peoples of Mexico and Central America honored the dead and made peace with the celebration. “It is very important for us to keep these traditions alive in order to never forget our loved ones,” he added.
