In 2010, SOHO founded the first Old Town San Diego community-wide Día de los Mu***os celebration.
The holiday, known also as Day of the Dead, is observed annually ONLY on November 1 and 2 and celebrates the unity of life and death.
This holiday is deeply meaningful in any year, but in this time of COVID, with an inconceivable number of lives lost it is essential that people know of multiple ways to grieve and also to commemorate the lives of deceased loved ones.
SOHO has put together a wide-ranging and comprehensive array of FREE online resources to celebrate Día de los Mu***os virtually this year that includes the history and culture, traditional foods and recipes, and a robust section on arts and crafts activities.
Dedicated to remembering and honoring those that have passed before us, it is also centrally focused on the artistic expression of the living through the creation of ofrendas, arts, decorating, cooking, and more.
