We're so excited to be taking part once more in events around Toronto to celebrate Día de Los Muertos, also known as Day of the Dead.
What is Day of the Dead? Our friends at Día de Los Muertos Collective say it best:
"In traditional Day of the Dead/ Día de los Muertos festivities in Mexico, friends and family gather to remember loved ones who have passed away, and to support their spiritual journey onward. To commemorate those who have died — whether in our own families or circle of friends or as a result of political persecution or neglect — we celebrate our being alive with food and dance, honour the memory of those gone through altars and art, and create an awareness of the fragility of life and its constant interweaving with death by way of the festivity’s geography. Celebrating together, we acknowledge death’s universality, honour the dead, and make a stand for a better future of greater justice."
This year, you can find us serving our Mexican-style drinking chocolate, dark chocolate bars, and of course specialty Day of the Dead chocolate skulls and bites at events all around the city.
