Día de los Muertos is a fusion of the Catholic holidays All Saints Day and All Souls Day and the ancient Aztec tradition Mictecacihuatl that was practiced for 3,000 years before Spanish Conquistadors landed in what is now present-day Mexico.
Día de los Muertos is a day to honour the dead, but the occasion is far from sombre. Instead of mourning the passing of loved ones, the day celebrates the vibrancy of their lives.
It is a festival for family and friends to honour and celebrate the lives of their loved ones who have passed away. The belief is that at midnight on October 31 the spirits of loved ones can come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.
You are invited to a casual get together to remember our loved ones in this tradition, to be held from 1-4pm on Sunday 31st October 2021 at the TCFQ office at 44 Newdegate Greenslopes.
Enjoy a glass of Sangria or soft drink, goody bags provided for the children and movies to watch. Please bring a plate of your loved one’s favourite food, or fruit to share, and a photo that can be pinned to a garland (not in a frame).
For catering purposes please complete the form below or RSVP by 25th October to Jen at the office by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07 3540 9949
We look forward to seeing you there!
